Wanting to boost your clinical skills when it comes to the anterior eye?  Wanting to get more confident in corneal foreign body removal and lacrimal lavage?

He completed his ophthalmology training at Sydney Eye Hospital. He spent two further fellowship years at the Concord Repatriation Hospital in Sydney and Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital in the United Kingdom, sub-specialising in complex glaucoma and oculoplastic.
