We are part of St George's Hospital in Christchurch. Our onsite operating theatres are state-of-the-art, and equipped with the latest technology.
A collaborative approach
You will see the same ophthalmologist before, during and after your treatment, and we work directly with your GP or optometrist as part of your long-term eye care team.
We are passionate about putting the patient first.
We appreciate that any surgery involving your eyes is a big step and requires careful consideration. Our compassionate team will keep you informed, relaxed and reassured throughout your treatment. We pride ourselves on delivering first-class care within modern, state-of-the-art facilities.
As no two eyes are the same, we prefer to take a personalised approach. This means working with you and your family to develop a treatment plan that reflects your condition, lifestyle and individual needs.
Our high standard of care and advanced treatment options are sought by patients and referrers from throughout the South Island.
Setting a new standard in specialist eye care
Our two ophthalmologists, Dr Oliver Comyn and Dr Paul Baddeley, are highly-skilled and well-regarded in the industry. They both worked at prestigious eye hospitals in the United Kingdom and were trained by pioneering and world-renowned ophthalmologists.
Dr Comyn and Dr Baddeley are supported by a team of nurses, technicians and support staff who are all trained in providing specialist eye care. We treat a wide variety of eye conditions all under the one roof, using advanced surgical techniques and the latest equipment to achieve excellent clinical outcomes.
