Mr Modi grew up in Barnes in South West London and attended St Paul's School, where he developed an early interest in medicine. He studied medicine at Guy's, King's and St Thomas' Hospitals Medical School which he completed in 2005. During this time he also completed a BSc in Aerospace Physiology and a Diploma in the History of Medicine from the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries of London.
He developed his interest in Ophthalmology after seeing the life-changing results of cataract surgery whilst in his second year of medical school at St Thomas' Hospital. This, in fact, was where the first ever intra-ocular lens was inserted by Harold Ridley in 1949. He further developed this interest by completing his medical school electives in Ophthalmology at Johns Hopkins in the US and Sankara Nethralaya in India.
He completed his Ophthalmology training in the Peninsula Deanery, where he worked with some inspirational doctors and surgeons. During this time, he also wrote the book 'Basic Sciences in Ophthalmology,' which he published with Oxford University Press. This is now used by many trainees around the world as a companion to their exams. He also completed an MBA (with merit) at Imperial College, London in order to learn skills to lead and develop local and national eye services.
Mr Modi practices at Frimley Park Hospital, Camberley and Mount Alvernia Hospital, Guildford. He is a comprehensive Ophthalmologist with a particular interest in cataract, glaucoma and oculoplastic surgery.
He now lives in Guildford with his wife and young family. His hobbies now include gardening (unsuccessfully) and cycling.
