We manage a wide range of eye diseases. Please contact our team for more information.
A cataract occurs when the natural lens in our eyes becomes cloudy. The cloudy lens scatters any incoming light and can lead to blurring of your vision, glare and faded colours. We offer cataract surgery where we replace the clouded lens with an implantable lens. Our ophthalmologists also specialise in complex cataract surgery and advanced intraocular lens implantation techniques. This includes toric and multifocal intraocular lens. Contact us now and we can help determine if this surgery is right for you.
Retinal detachment is a sight threatening condition where the light detecting layer (retina) separates from the wall of the eye. With timely surgery, our team of highly regarded specialists can help prevent blindness from retinal detachment. Please get in touch urgently if you are having symptoms of retinal detachment which may include new floaters, flashing lights, shadows in your vision and sudden loss of vision. We use the very latest techniques and equipment for this surgery, which may involve vitrectomy and/or silicone buckling. The most appropriate surgical approach with you at the initial visit.
Macular hole is an uncommon condition where a little hole develops in the centre of the most sensitive part of your light detecting layer (retina). Patients with macular hole will be troubled with distortion and reduced vision. Our doctors specialise in repairing macular holes and will be able to advise you on the best course of action.
Epiretinal membrane occurs when a thin membrane forms and wrinkles the light detecting layer of your eye. This usually results in troublesome distortion and reduction in vision. Surgical removal is very successful and the only treatment option. Please make an appointment to see our team to determine if surgery is right for you.
MACULAR DEGENERATION (WET AND DRY)
The most common cause of visual loss in our community, age related macular degeneration occurs as a result of wear and tear of the macula (the centre most light detecting layer in our eye).
