About Alison’s career
Alison is one of New Zealand’s most experienced retina specialists with a particular interest in macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease. She is a graduate of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in the UK, followed by medical retinal training in Bristol (UK), Auckland and Sydney.
The medical retina service run by Alison offers state of the art digital angiography, OCT, retinal laser, photodynamic therapy and intravitreal therapies for macular degeneration. Alison is also an experienced small incision refractive cataract surgeon and has a wide experience of general ophthalmology. When not at Auckland Eye, she also holds an appointment at Greenlane Clinical Centre.
She is a member of the Australian Retinal Society and Oceania Retinal Association and actively participates in optometrist, general practitioner and junior ophthalmology training. She also provides a medical retina service to the Cook Island community on an annual basis.
Alison enjoys the human aspect of her work and feels that individual care is central to ensuring her patients can maximise their vision potential. Medical retina can provide the opportunity for long term relationships with patients and Alison finds it extremely rewarding to see her patients enjoying all in life that improved vision can bring.
Alison has two daughters, is married to an obgyn specialist and when not working likes to have her eyes fixed firmly on the sails or the slopes.
