What is ophthalmology?

Our ophthalmology service helps prevent, detect and treat disorders of the eye. Ophthalmologists differ from optometrists and opticians in their levels of training and in what they can diagnose and treat. As a medical doctor, an ophthalmologist is licensed to practise medicine and surgery.

At The Wesley Hospital, our highly trained Brisbane ophthalmologists treat conditions including:

  • Age-related macular degeneration.
  • Cataracts.
  • Corneal disease.
  • Diabetic retinopathy.
  • Glaucoma.
  • Vision problems.
  • Other ophthalmologic disorders.
