Subsequently in 2008, I successfully completed the three year glaucoma sub speciality programme. As part of my training, I did a one year fellowship in Westmead and Sydney Eye Hospital in Sydney, Australia from 2006-2007.
In addition, to my busy clinical schedule and administrative duties, I am also a clinical mentor to the postgraduate students and glaucoma fellows.

Since commencing my practice in glaucoma , I have been actively involved in the training of ophthalmologist ,paramedical staff and creating awareness in the general public about glaucoma.
