Mr Baer is currently a consultant ophthalmologist surgeon at the Royal United Hospital in Bath and at CircleBath.
He completed general medical training at St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, before training as an eye surgeon at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London. In 1995 he worked in Cape Town as a clinical fellow prior to taking up his Consultant post in Bath the following year.
He sees private patients at CircleBath, a newly built ‘state of the art’ hospital situated just outside the city.
His areas of expertise include cataract surgery and the management of glaucoma. Mr Baer has performed over 15,000 of these operations since 1987. He has a particular interest in ‘premium’ lens implants such as toric implants to correct astigmatism and multifocal lenses which enable distance and near vision to be corrected simultaneously.
He runs the glaucoma service at the RUH and is the only surgeon in the Bath area performing glaucoma surgery.
