Ophthalmology covers all aspects of eye care, including eye tests and screening for eye diseases, medical treatment, laser treatment, complex microsurgery and research.
All eye procedures and surgeries are now conducted at our new, state-of-the art eye hospital, St John of God Subiaco Eye Hospital, to provide our patients a more comfortable and efficient experience specific to their clinical needs.
The facility is conveniently located across the road from St John of God Subiaco Hospital, and is where many of Western Australia’s most trusted and experienced ophthalmologists choose to admit their patients.
Our range of ophthalmology services are designed to treat eye conditions and return or improve vision. Our ophthalmologists diagnose and treat disorders and diseases affecting the eye, eye socket and eyelids, and their functions.
Many of our ophthalmologists have a sub-specialty interest, in areas such as cataracts, glaucoma or retinal conditions, and are involved in the latest technological advances and scientific research to ensure patients receive the highest standard of care.
