About Archie’s career
Archie is a highly experienced ophthalmic clinician and surgeon with over 15 years experience treating diseases of the retina and refractive cataract correction. Archie obtained medical (MBChB) and research (PhD in Neuroanatomy) degrees in Auckland before training in ophthalmology in Auckland and Waikato hospitals. He then completed sub-specialty fellowships in diseases of the Retina and Vitreous at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics that consistently ranks in the top ten ophthalmology training programs in the US.
On his return, he tutored full-time at Auckland Hospital in 1995 and 1996 before commencing private practice at Auckland Eye, where he provides assessments at Remuera, Takapuna, Albany and Red Beach.
Archie is a member of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists, the Oceania Retinal Association, the Retinal Specialists Association and the American Society of Retinal Specialists. He also regularly provides continuing education for optometrists and GP’s.
Archie takes particular pleasure in the maintenance or recovery of vision for patients who have eye conditions that historically were untreatable. Thanks to dramatic improvements in the quality of outcomes for cataract, surgical retina, diabetes and macular degeneration in the last decade, many of his patients are now able to live active and independent lives.
Archie’s father practiced as a GP in Mt Eden and he enjoys the continuity of treating many of his father’s former patients many years later.
When not working hard for his patients, Archie manages to find time for photography, windsurfing, boating and skiing. He has been married for over 20 years and is the proud father of three adult children.
