Dr Logan Robinson began his training at the University of Otago, gaining his medical degree in 2003. Having developed a keen desire to study ophthalmology early on in his degree he completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Ophthalmic Basic Sciences with distinction in 2008. He was awarded Fellowship of the Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists in 2015.
Logan completed a fellowship in Retinal surgery at Wellington Hospital in 2014. Moving to the UK in 2014 he completed a second Retinal surgery fellowship at the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital – one of only two such dedicated eye hospitals in the UK.
In Manchester he learned the latest in Retinal surgery and cataract surgery techniques. This specialised training gives him the skills and knowledge to treat conditions such as retinal detachment, macula hole, epiretinal membrane, diabetic eye disease and macula degeneration. This training also qualifies him to be a member of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Retinal Specialists.
Returning to Christchurch in 2015, Logan took up a position as a consultant ophthalmologist at Christchurch Hospital. There he is Clinical Lead of the Intravitreal Injection Service, overseeing the delivery of over 8000 intravitreal injections each year, given for conditions such as ‘wet’ macula degeneration, diabetes and retinal vein occlusions. Logan also performs cataract surgery on behalf of the Canterbury Charity Hospital.
Logan prides himself on his communication skills which are of great assistance to help patients for understand their condition and make informed treatment decisions.
Away from work Logan is an avid sports fan, particularly rugby and cricket, or any sport his two young boys are participating in. On the weekend he gets out and about on his mountain-bike or enjoys a hack around the golf course.
