Mr Richard Stead

Consultant Ophthalmologist

Mr Richard Stead has been working as a consultant ophthalmologist at Queens Medical Centre since 2015. Over the last 20 years Ophthalmic health has been both his academic and professional focus. A first-class degree in Optometry, finishing top of the year, led to a greater interest in the treatment of eye conditions and spurred Richard on to leaving a career in Optometry and committing to training in medicine. Throughout his training in Leicester, Richard was always focussed on Ophthalmology, winning the local Keeler prize and finishing in the top three of the prestigious national Duke Elder prize before undertaking an elective at the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital. Richard completed his specialist training at The Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham, gaining his fellowship to the Royal College of Ophthalmologists quickly.
