Mr Jackson is a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at King's College Hospital, a large teaching hospital in South London.
He undertakes cataract surgery and has a sub-specialty interest in macular and retinal surgery. He is a HEFCE Senior Lecturer at King's College London, part of the King's Health Partners, the UK's largest Academic Health Science Centre.
Current interests include studies of ocular macromolecular diffusion and drug modification in relation to the pharmacotherapy of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), ocular safety testing using cell culture techniques, and studies investigating the vitreomacular interface and how this influences wet AMD.
He is Editor-in-Chief of the Moorfields Manual of Ophthalmology. He is actively involved in clinical research and leads the MERLOT study of epimacular brachytherapy, one of the country's largest randomised controlled trials in ophthalmology.
He has been closely involved in key studies of stereotactic radiotherapy for wet AMD, and the use of ocriplasmin for pharmacological vitreolysis. More recently he has been involved in the clinical trial of subretinal implants, the so-called 'bionic eye'.
Mr Jackson supervises clinicians undertaking MDs and PhDs, serves as a specialist advisor to NICE, and is engaged as a Key Opinion Leader by Industry.
