About Sid's career
Sid is excited to be a 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 a very active Ophthalmologist, working across the Auckland region in public as well as private practice. He currently consults in our Takapuna, Remuera and Ormiston practices. He is also working across all three Auckland district health boards (Auckland, Counties-Manukau, and Waitemata).
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, discussing the options, and coming to a decision together regarding the best fit for them.
Please see Sid to discuss options for:
- Droopy eyelids
- Heavy upper eyelids (Blepharoplasty)
- Double eyelid surgery (Asian eyelids)
- Cosmetic eye surgery
- Blocked tear ducts
- Watery eyes
- Skin cancer removal and reconstruction
- Any other eyelid cysts/lumps/bumps
- Eyebrow lifts
- Cataracts and blurred vision
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.
