Caroline Wilde is an award-winning Ophthalmic and Oculoplastic Surgeon, specialising in blepharoplasty surgery, eyelid surgery and advanced facial aesthetics. Since graduating with honours, she has gone on to receive multiple accolades and widespread acclaim for her work and research.
Miss Wilde has a track record of academic excellence. Her successes include a distinction for her Masters of Research at the Institute of Ophthalmology and UCL and winning the esteemed Florence Nightingale Prize for her work at the University of Liverpool.
After completing seven years of ophthalmology training and two fellowships in oculoplastic surgery at the renowned Moorfields Eye Hospital, she was invited by her mentor, Mr Daniel Ezra, to join his distinguished Harley Street team.
She is a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and a member of the British Oculoplastic Surgery Society.
Caroline Wilde is passionate about surgery and achieving the best outcomes for her patients. She has trained in all aspects of eye surgery and has performed over two thousand procedures.
A significant proportion of her training was based at the Moorfields satellite within St George’s Hospital, which is one of the largest hospitals in Europe and is a major trauma centre. Here she learned to manage complex cases and worked in a multidisciplinary team with maxillofacial, ENT and neurosurgeons.
Her approach to cosmetic and reconstructive eyelid surgery is to aim for natural, refreshed results. Scars are often hidden in the creases of the eyelids or just above the brows and are often invisible after a few weeks. Non surgical treatments are used to enhance the appearance without creating an unnatural appearance.
She is a caring and compassionate doctor who strives to help patients reach their aesthetic goals.
Research has been a constant focus throughout Caroline’s career. In addition to her medical degree, she completed a Masters of Research at the Institute of Ophthalmology and UCL. During her masters degree, she performed a natural history study of patients with achromatopsia, an inherited eye disease, in preparation for gene therapy trials. At present, the clinical trials are now underway and the preliminary results are promising.
She has presented her research internationally and published several articles in peer-reviewed journals, one winning her the prestigious Théa Trophy, presented at ARVO in Vancouver. Her current research includes improving outcomes in aesthetic oculoplastics.
Teaching and Training
In addition to clinical work, Caroline is dedicated to sharing her expertise through teaching and training. She believes that surgeons should speak openly about their outcomes and share lessons they have learned. This ethos led to the evolution of a surgical training evening which she has ran for London ophthalmologists for the past three years.
As part of the Vision 2020 project, she has written the oculoplastic curriculum for trainee ophthalmologists in Ghana. This project aims to improve sub-speciality ophthalmology teaching and involves a series of online lectures followed by hands-on surgical coaching. The ultimate objective is that these online lectures will be offered to all developing nations and that the surgeons who have attended the course will go on to teach and train the next generation.
