Dr David McKeag is a Melbourne trained ophthalmologist with extensive subspecialty training and experience in oculoplastic surgery. He undertook two oculoplastic surgical fellowships in the United Kingdom, first at the University Hospital of Wales and then at the Royal Manchester 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.
Oculoplastic surgery encompasses all problems relating to the lacrimal system (tearing), the eyelids and the orbit (everything surrounding and behind the eye itself).
Dr David McKeag also performs cataract surgery, pterygium surgery and offers a comprehensive eye care service.
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.
