Queensland Laser Vision

Queensland Laser Vision Surgeons

Our surgeons at Queensland Laser Vision are world regarded ophthalmic surgeons who believe that your eyes are our priority. They have been operating on eyes for a minimum of 29 years and have performed thousands of laser refractive procedures. Their skills gained by experience and furthering their education throughout London, Canada, USA, Italy and Switzerland ensure the best possible outcome for your eyes.

They have not only trained in Australia and overseas, but many or our surgeons are also responsible for assessing, training and mentoring the future generation of ophthalmic surgeons. Our surgeons also constantly refine their skills and keep informed of latest techniques by attending and presenting at international and national conferences and meetings. Many of our surgeons also volunteer their time in providing essential ophthalmic care in East Timor and Kiribati.
