Dr David McKeag is an ophthalmologist with dedicated subspecialty training in oculoplastic surgery. Oculoplastic surgery manages all conditions of the area surrounding the eye, including the eyelids, tear drainage system and behind the eye itself (the orbit).
Dr David McKeag also performs cataract surgery, pterygium surgery and offers a comprehensive eye care service.
Dr McKeag trained as an ophthalmologist at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital in Melbourne. He then undertook specialist oculoplastic training in the United Kingdom at the University Hospital of Wales and Manchester Royal Eye Hospital. His training encompasses all available techniques to manage oculoplastic conditions in adults and children. His focus is on tailored therapy, taking into consideration of the type of problem, the circumstances of the individual patient and the possible treatment options.
All patient assessments and surgical procedures are performed with meticulous attention to detail. Surgery in and around the eye must aim to achieve the best possible results, which should solve the underlying problem, be functional, be comfortable and be good cosmetically.
Dr McKeag is a member of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists and the Australian and New Zealand Society of Ophthalmic Plastic Surgeons (http://www.anzsops.org/).
