Dr Tas Braithwaite is a consultant ophthalmologist specialising in the diagnosis and management of inflammatory eye disease (uveitis and scleritis) and neuro-ophthalmic disorders.
Tas takes a particular interest in the holistic care of patients who have vision problems and eye symptoms resulting from autoimmune, autoinflammatory, infectious and neuro-ophthalmic diseases, and she manages patients requiring systemic therapy including immunosuppression and biologic therapy. She worked as a locum consultant at Moorfields Eye Hospital, King's College Hospital and The National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery, before joining the medical eye unit at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust.
Tas aims to deliver predictive, preventive, personalised and participatory medicine to her patients, and to inform evidence-based practice internationally. Working with a network of global collaborators, her research programme focuses on developing tools to better quantify the impacts of eye disease on quality of life, and understanding the epidemiology of eye diseases and associated risk factors.
She holds a dual appointment as adjunct and honorary senior lecturer in the School of Immunology and Microbial Sciences, and the School of Life Course Sciences, King's College London.
