Rubina offers bespoke small incision cataract surgery for simple and complex cataracts. She has a special interest in Combined cataract and Vitreo-retinal surgery and has published widely on this subject.

She has pioneered non-posturing macular hole surgery and rigorously performs outcome audits on her surgeries to maintain an above average success rate. She was one of the first surgeons in the UK to offer small incision (23G, 0.6mm) vitrectomy to her patients to allow quicker visual rehabilitation. Currently Rubina has adapted an even smaller incision (27G, 0.4mm) vitrectomy to allow quicker visual rehabilitation.

Rubina offers vitrectomy surgery for a variety of retinal conditions including floaters, macular hole, epiretinal membrane, retinal detachment etc. She is a keen researcher having published over 35 publications in peer reviewed journals. She regularly presents her work in Ophthalmology meetings such as British association of Vitreo-retinal surgeon, American Society of Retinal Surgeons and European Society of retinal Specialists. She reviews manuscript for prestigious journals such as Eye, JCRS and Retina.
