This page is intended for Ophthalmologists, Optometrists and General Practitioners (GPs). If you are a patient or visitor please visit the Patient Hub.

At the Lions Eye Institute we can offer patients the full spectrum of ophthalmic care.

All of our ophthalmologists are sub-specialists, with some even specialising in more than one area. This means they have completed intensive training, including extra qualifications to gain expertise in treating specific or more complex conditions in certain parts of the eye or in certain types of patients. Many of our clinicians are also involved in the latest technological advances and scientific research.

To find out the sub speciality areas we cover at the Lions Eye Institute, go to Clinical Services.

To assist your patients learn more about their eye condition, a range of Fact Sheets is provided, and we encourage you to provide these to your patient.

We aim to match the correct sub specialist with the appropriate eye condition. To refer a patient to the Lions Eye Institute, simply choose from one of the convenient methods below:
