Mr Agrawal received international training across numerous centres of excellence. While he also has a first-class honours degree in biochemistry, he graduated from Cambridge University in 2002. Following his residency training in the West Midlands he developed a sub-specialist interest in cataract and glaucoma.

Throughout the fellowship he worked closely with the UK’s key opinion leader’s of modern-day techniques for glaucoma filtration surgery.
