When your vision matters
Surgeons at Eye Doctors work to protect and preserve one of our most valued and precious senses – our sight.
The team of highly experienced surgeons and support staff at this modern clinic have never lost sight of their original focus, and that is to offer comprehensive, boutique-style eye care and surgery to patients in a safe and welcoming environment.
Located at Greenlane’s Ascot Hospital (a surgical centre of international standing) Eye Doctors prides itself in continuity of care with a personal touch. Instead of being screened by technicians or trainees, you will be examined and treated by the same specialist surgeon each time you visit the clinic.
‘‘We believe everybody should have an opportunity to see the world with clear and healthy vision, which is why everything we do is designed to help our patients achieve the best possible outcome for their condition,’’ practice manager Lorraine Beattie says.
You’ll find state-of-the-art facilities and equipment at the Columba theatre suite, with full anaesthetic and specialist nursing support. Columba is located within the Ascot premises, which means patients and families do not have to shuttle between different locations, but simply walk down the corridor.
As well as being skilled cataract surgeons, Eye Doctors consultants have received extensive international training in their fields of special interest. Dr Shuan Dai is an expert in conditions relating to children and eye movements; Dr Mark Donaldson specialises in glaucoma and the retina; Dr Penny McAllum in the cornea and surface of the eye; and Dr Andrew Riley in the retina and plastic surgery around the eye, known as oculoplastics.
As well as working to improve the vision of New Zealanders, they also regularly give their time and skills to a number of island nations in the Pacific. Call Eye Doctors on 520 9689 or visit www.eyedoctors.co.nz.
