Yvonne is a specialist ophthalmologist at Auckland Eye and part-time specialist ophthalmologist at Greenlane Clinical Centre. She provides services in general and paediatric ophthalmology with a sub-specialty interest in eye movement disorders and retinoblastoma, a rare childhood eye condition. To that end, she underwent two years of post-fellowship subspecialty training at children’s hospitals in Vancouver and Toronto.
Yvonne consults at Auckland Eye in Remuera and Takapuna and also provides assessments at satellite clinics in Henderson and Botany. She is a Senior Lecturer for the Department of Ophthalmology, University of Auckland and a Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologist (RANZCO) Trainee Supervisor for junior ophthalmologists. She also regularly lectures and provides clinical teaching to medical students, optometrists and general practitioners.
Yvonne has also been a fellow of RANZCO since 2000, and Senior Medical Officer at the Auckland District Health Board since 2001. In this capacity she has been providing clinical and surgical services in paediatric as well as general ophthalmology. This has included the management of adult and paediatric cataracts, paediatric and adult strabismus, neuro- ophthalmic disorders, childhood vision screening and emergency ophthalmic care. She has a special interest in paediatric ophthalmology, particularly in the management of retinoblastoma, and is the ophthalmologist for the Auckland Retinoblastoma multidisciplinary group.
Educated in Auckland, Yvonne is also conversant in both Cantonese and Mandarin.
An integral part of Yvonne’s position as Consultant Specialist is the teaching of medical and optometry students, registrars and colleagues. She considers providing medical education to be an important component of her current and future practice, and has found this both challenging and enjoyable. In her words, she is passionate about her role at Auckland Eye, “I very much enjoy and consider it a privilege to work within the Auckland Eye team, and believe that as a practice, we are each able to contribute our expertise and experience towards the provision of ophthalmic care to the very highest international standards.”
