What is an Ophthalmologist?

Ophthalmologists are medically trained specialists who handle many of the medical aspects of eye care, including diagnosis, medical treatment and surgery for eye and eyelid conditions.

Here at Inner East Eye Surgeons, we are a group of Ophthalmologists practicing in the Box Hill Hospital/Epworth Eastern medical precinct and service the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.  Our ophthalmology clinic is located 20 minutes from the city. Our staff are well trained and experienced, and our facilities are clean and modern.
