The Lions Eye Institute’s highly experienced ophthalmologists treat the full spectrum of eye conditions and are supported by dedicated ophthalmic nursing staff and other health professionals. Through state-of-the-art equipment and innovative approaches to treatments and therapies, we can offer exceptional clinical services.
The Lions Eye Institute operates busy eye health clinics in Nedlands, Murdoch, Midland and Broome, and treats approximately 60,000 patients each year, making it one of the largest ophthalmic practices in Australia.
Our clinics are complemented by Day Surgery Centres in Nedlands and Murdoch that combine the best in medical technology and staff and offer a range of surgical services, including vitrectomy, cataract micro-surgery and lens implantation, plastic surgery of the eyelids, ptosis repair, pterygia, conjunctival grafts and corneal grafts.
The Lions Laser Vision centre in Nedlands is the premier LASIK facility in Western Australia and corrects all forms of refractive error, including myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (long-sightedness) and astigmatism.
The clinic supports the Lions Eye Institute’s world-renowned medical research program, which informs and influences the sight-saving work of the clinic.
The Lions Eye Institute’s Murdoch Clinic opened next to St John of God Hospital in 2005 and today is a busy and growing clinic with six Lions Eye Institute ophthalmologists running clinics at the centre. In 2019 the clinic moved into new premises in the Murdoch Medical Centre.
In recent years the Lions Eye Institute opened a clinic in Midland to better service Perth’s fast-growing eastern corridor. The clinic provides access to the latest eye treatments and technologies at a location that is close to their homes, being convenient for people who live east of Perth or in the Wheatbelt region.
Lions Outback Vision’s Kimberley Hub opened in 2021 following a complete transformation of the former Kimberley Klub backpackers hostel. Surgery is currently completed at the Broome Hospital. The services of the Kimberley Hub are complemented by tele-ophthalmology and the Vision Van.
