A new privately owned eye clinic in Victoria has been established and quickly expanded in response to the escalating eye health needs of the State’s ageing population. Between them, Armadale Eye Clinic’s eight ophthalmologists offer refractive, cataract, retinal and glaucoma treatment as well as neurophthalmology services.

The practice’s retinal team comprises Dr. Andrew Shaw and Dr. Edward Roufail. Dr. Roufail has a keen interest in advanced diabetic retinopathy, vitreous haemorrhage, macular hole surgery, epiretinal membrane management and retinal detachment. Vitreoretinal surgeon, Dr. Andrew Shaw has expertise in surgical and medical treatment of all retinal diseases.

The Clinic’s medical retinal team comprises Dr. Amy Cohn who also works with Centre for Eye Research and is a principal investigator in the LEAD study; Dr. Sue Cochrane who has a special interest in retinal vein occlusion and macular degeneration, and general ophthalmologist and expert cataract surgeon Dr. Phil Hoffman.

Dr. Anton Van Heerden offers cataract and refractive surgery and also has a special interest in the management of retinal disease at the time of cataract surgery. Cataract surgery is also offered by internationally trained expert Dr. Ross McIntyre. Additionally Dr. McIntyre specialises in medical diseases of the cornea and corneal transplant surgery.

Neuro-ophthalmologist Dr. Brent Gaskin joined the group in May 2015. Dr. Gaskin has specialist training in the surgical correction of eyelid malposition (drooping or sagging eyelids), functional and cosmetic blepharoplasty, peri-ocular skin cancer and watery eyes.
