I am a medical retina and macula subspecialist, with expertise in the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with retinal conditions. My particular interests are macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and vein occlusions. I graduated in medicine from the University of New South Wales with Honours, before completing both a Master of Medicine in Ophthalmic Science and a Master of Medicine with merit in Clinical Epidemiology at the University of Sydney. I then undertook ophthalmology training at The Sydney Eye Hospital, followed by the Medical Retina and Uveitis fellowship at the prestigious Moorfields Eye Hospital in London. I am the co-author of the Eye Emergency Manual, which has been distributed across all the hospitals in New South Wales. I have numerous publications in major international ophthalmology journals and am a reviewer for the RANZCO college journal. I have presented at international ophthalmic meetings, and am a member of RANZCO, ANZSRS, AAO and ARVO. I regularly attends international meetings to keep up to date with developments in Medical Retina. I have been involved in a number of international clinical trials investigating the latest treatments for macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and uveitis and am able to bring this knowledge to my patients. I am a Visiting Medical Officer at Bankstown Hospital where I supervises registrars in the medical retina clinic and am a Clinical lecturer at the University of Sydney.
