Dr Sid Ogra
Oculoplastic Fellowship, Hereford, UK 2019
Sid is excited to be the latest member of the Auckland Eye team, and to provide specialist Oculoplastic care to the population of Auckland.
After graduating medical school (with distinction) in Auckland, Sid knew that Ophthalmology was the right fit for him. He completed his Ophthalmology training in Auckland, Rotorua, and Wellington, and was able to travel to the UK to further refine his skills in Oculoplastic surgery. Further experience followed at the prestigious Byers Eye Institute in Stanford, USA, as well as Samsung Medical Centre in Seoul, South Korea.
Sid is currently an Oculoplastic and Cataract surgeon working at both Greenlane Clinical Centre (Auckland District Health Board), as well as the Manukau SuperClinic (Counties-Manukau District Health Board). He has a strong belief that doctors and patients must work together as a team to achieve the best results. This means empowering his patients with all of the relevant knowledge and options, and coming to a decision together regarding the best fit for them.
Sid consults in Remuera, Takapuna, and Papatoetoe. He is able to offer surgical options for:
Heavy upper eyelids
Blocked tear ducts
Skin cancer removal and reconstruction
Other eyelid cysts/lumps
Sid enjoys learning about new things in his spare time, whether it be related to mechanical things or food science. He is into all types of sports, and enjoys the outdoors with his young family when possible.
