TAKE TWO: Surgeon from Chorleywood who ran marathon in 1993 to take on challenge again

 Published on: 19th April 2024   |   By: Annabel Stock   |   Category: Uncategorized

An ophthalmic surgeon and Chorleywood resident is gearing up to run the London Marathon – 31 years after he first completed the challenge.

Dr Michael Miller will be retracing the steps he took back in 1993 when he ran the London Marathon for Glaucoma UK. He wanted to thank the charity, which provides support to people with the eye condition, for sponsoring his research into glaucoma in the early 1990s.

Thirty-one years on, Michael will be running for the very same charity, this time alongside his son. They will take on the marathon together on April 21.

Michael was a consultant eye surgeon at Moorfields Eye Hospital from 1992. He worked in the Glaucoma Service and later in the Cataract Service at Moorfields and at Northwick Park until 2017. Over the years, he has cared for thousands of patients with glaucoma. He has also operated on thousands of cataract patients and, in his record year, completed 1,200 cataract procedures.

Semi-retired now, Michael says he still enormously enjoys his work and has no wish to stop yet.
