All eye specialists at Southern Eye are medical graduates who have a ‘Fellowship of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists’ and are vastly experienced at isolating specific eye disorders, and performing various procedures including eye surgery and laser treatment. In addition our specialists have had overseas fellowships in a wide variety of disciplines including glaucoma, vitreo-retinal surgery, medical retina including diabetic eye care, strabismus, neuro-ophthalmology and oculoplastic surgery.
