Why Choose Us?

  • Exemplary training:

    The ophthalmologists at Retina & Eye Consultants Miranda have trained in Australia and are members of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (FRANZCO). After achieving registration, they have all completed additional sub-specialty training at prestigious ophthalmology institutions abroad, under the mentorship of leading internationally-recognised ophthalmologists. This provided exposure to a high volume of patients with both common and rare clinical problems, developing a depth of expertise and training that they are able to use in the treatment of their patients in Australia.

  • Teamwork:

    Our team of ophthalmologists in Miranda are supported by a superb unit of clinical and clerical staff, who undertake many of the tasks involved in organising an appointment and beginning the assessment of your eye problem. Providing the highest quality eye care is complex and the close teamwork and unity of purpose  is key to achieving this.

  • Patient-centred care:

    Our ophthalmologists, clinical and clerical staff will always listen to and be respectful of your needs, and fully inform and involve you in any decisions that need to be made about your care. We understand the importance of obtaining the best outcome for you and we will strive to achieve it. Several languages are spoken in the practice including Cantonese, some Mandarin, Hindi, Nepalese, Spanish and Arabic.

  • Our Ophthalmologists are also teachers and researchers:

    Each one of our ophthalmologists has an appointment at a leading teaching hospital and is actively involved in teaching ophthalmology trainees and cutting-edge research. This means that their skills and knowledge are current and of the highest standard.

  • Access to clinical trials:

    Our Miranda practice is actively engaged in clinical trials. If you qualify to participate in a trial, your ophthalmologist will let you know and explain your options to you.

  • Why you can be confident:

    Surgical competency and expert clinical judgement take years to develop. The combination of the strong training programme for cataract, glaucoma, strabismus and retinal surgery in this country with specific, additional training at prestigious international centres of eye care in the USA and UK, make the ophthalmologists at Retina & Eye Consultants Miranda experts in their field.

    Working as part of a team with our professional, caring and dedicated clinical and clerical staff, our ophthalmologists are able to provide you with the care that you need to achieve the best results for your vision.
