Auckland Eye welcomes Dr Rachael Niederer. Dr Niederer will be running clinics once a week at Auckland Eye Remuera with her sub-speciality being uveitis and medical retina.

Dr Niederer decided to train in Ophthalmology because she loves microsurgery. During her training she received a Vice Chancellors Best Doctoral Thesis award for her PhD, a gold Howsam medal for her exams, then studied at the prestigious Moorfields Eye Hospital in London. Upon returning to New Zealand she has been working at Greenlane, is a senior lecturer in ophthalmology at Auckland University and has won several medals for her research and teaching.

Rachael brings with her a wealth of knowledge in ophthalmology and has recently been doing research into Herpes Zoster, wanting to improve the outcomes, as in a recent study, involving  869 people who had the zoster virus, 1 in 10 lost their sight due to the disease.

Dr Niederer has a particular interest in up-skilling registrars and running courses, and she is the college representative for Auckland Ophthalmology trainees.

Dr Niederer lives on the north shore in Auckland and her hobbies include running, sailing and being at the beach with her children.

To book in with Dr Niederer contact 0800 25 53 93.
