My areas of expertise:

  • Ophthalmology
  • Laser refractive surgery (SMILE, Presbyond, LASIK, PRK, PTK)
  • Refractive lens exchange
  • Cataract surgery
  • Glaucoma treatment
  • Macular degeneration
I am a consultant ophthalmologist at My-iClinic. I was one of the first surgeons to introduce micro incision cataract surgery to the UK and have performed over 35,000 cataract surgeries over the course of my career.

I get great satisfaction from teaching young ophthalmologists as they begin their surgical careers.

To learn ophthalmic surgery safely requires great care and dedication from both the teacher and the student. So far, I have taught over 1500 surgeons worldwide. I find it very satisfying when I later meet them at conferences and they update me on their success.

The future of the specialty is secure!

Here’s what Londoners say after eye treatment

We are proud to hear we make a meaningful difference to your life

Mr Bolger suggested having cataract surgery on both eyes on the same day and whilst I had concerns, I decided to go ahead. The day after I was able to remove the eye pads and I had perfect vision. I have told many people that it was the best thing I have ever spent my money on. I have needed spectacles or contact lenses since I was 9 years old and now have 20/20 vision with no assistance from spectacles. I would highly recommend the My-iClinic.

Mrs Penelope Carrozza

Double cataract removal in September 2018. The total experience from initial consultation to operation was most efficient. The result so far has been exactly as described in the brochure, I've never seen so well. I had glasses from just over 1 year old till now, (80+), what a difference!

Michael Turvey

Just discharged after having monovision cataract surgery in both eyes I am delighted with the outcome. I can see both near and far and have been able to dispense with my contact lenses and glasses. I have been well looked after from my first contact. Mr Bolger was very professional and reassuring and I felt at all times that I was in good hands. I cannot fault the whole experience including the charges, which having researched various alternatives, proved to be very reasonable.

I had high confidence in the team working at My-iClinic due to their attentive and thorough end-to-end service, from the reception desk to the operation theatre. I have recommended the practice already to multiple friends, family members and colleagues. (And my eyesight is better than I even hoped for!)

Ames Ward

Absolutely fantastic. I was very nervous having my laser treatment for narrow angle glaucoma. The Consultant was wonderful, caring and very understanding. She talked me through the procedure and was extremely patient. Definitely recommend My-iClinic.
