Our Practice


At Western Eye,
We Care.

Western Eye offers comprehensive compassionate and professional medical and surgical eye care. All our doctors are able to take cataract and general ophthalmology referrals. We are happy to see urgent cases and provide telephonic advice to optometrists and GPs.

In addition to our proficiency in cataract surgery, we all have advanced fellowship training and have sub-specialty expertise in areas including retinal diseases, ocular inflammation and infection, external eye disease, paediatrics, oculoplastics, motility disorders, neuro-ophthalmology and glaucoma. For cases requiring tertiary / multidisciplinary input, we also have further capacity with our appointments to the Royal Perth Hospital and Fremantle Hospital eye clinics.

At Western Eye we also offer an extensive range of lasers and diagnostic devices for both anterior and posterior segment problems. Advanced diagnostic procedures can be performed at our Mosman Park and Karrinyup consulting rooms without the need to attend a hospital. Our Kalamunda branch collaborates closely with local optometrists and GPs to reduce the need for Perth Hills Patients to travel in to town in most cases.
