Dalia Said is a vastly experienced and highly trained consultant ophthalmologist in Nottingham University Hospital (NUH) with a special interest in cornea and ocular surface, cataract and lens surgery. She is also the clinical lead for eye casualty at Nottingham University Hospital and is an expert in eye emergencies.

After finishing her MBChB in 1994, Masters degree in 1998 and MD degree 2005, Dalia continued to peruse her career internationally in both Egypt and England. She became a Professor in the Research Institute of Ophthalmology in Cairo, Egypt in 2014. Whilst working in Egypt she gained extensive experience in managing complex corneal infections, performing refractive surgery and was at the forefront of collagen cross-linking for infections and keratoconus.

During her training, she completed two corneal and ocular surface fellowships and an oculoplastic fellowship at the Nottingham University Hospital before being appointed as a substantive consultant in 2014.

Dalia has a special interest in corneal infections, corneal collagen cross-linking and corneal transplantation including lamellar surgery. She is also considered to be an expert in ocular surface surgery, dry eyes, cataract and lens exchange and refractive laser eye surgery.
