I am an ophthalmologist specialising in refractive cataract surgery . I graduated with Honours from the University of Sydney Medical School in 2001, and was awarded the Claffy Prize in Ophthalmology. Prior to this I completed a Bachelor of Medical Science degree at Sydney University, and later a Masters of Public Health at NSW University.
After completing ophthalmology training at the prestigious Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital in Melbourne, I returned to Sydney, just before my wife gave birth to the first of our two sons in 2009.
I subsequently completed a Fellowship in comprehensive ophthalmology at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, whilst undertaking a Graduate Diploma in Cataract and Refractive Surgery at Sydney University.
I have also completed a twelve-month Fellowship in Glaucoma at Sydney Eye Hospital.
I am a member of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists, as well as the Australasian Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.
I am a very experienced cataract surgeon, and currently one of Australia’s highest volume cataract surgeons. I have also performed thousands of intravitreal injections, for the treatment of macula diseases. I am proficient in pterygium and glaucoma surgery.
I enjoy teaching, and am the Head of the Ophthalmology Department at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, where we help to train the next generation of ophthalmologists.
I come from a family of doctors, with both of my parents working as GPs in Sydney for over forty years. My wife is a GP also, working in Cammeray. Socially, I love spending time with my young family, and watching the mighty Wests Tigers.
