Dr. Stubbs feels that the long term safety and excellent results from your cataract surgery are the most important measures of successful eye surgery.
Dr. Stubbs is part of a long tradition in Cataract Surgery, since 1963, when his father was the first eye surgeon in Australia to regularly implant intraocular lenses. At that stage, most eye surgeons simply removed the cataractous lens and left the patient with very thick spectacles that produced poor quality vision and disabling aberrations. Dr. Stubbs senior contributed to the world knowledge at international meetings in establishing safe implant surgery, which all eye surgeons benefit from now.
As technology changes and techniques become more and more refined, Dr. Tony Stubbs maintains skill levels with regular attendance at international conferences and regular discussions with colleagues.
Dr. Tony Stubbs aims to provide vision that is appropriate to the individual patient’s needs, whether it be playing golf or bowls, or a patient who spends a great deal of time reading. Dr. Stubbs listens carefully to every patient’s lifestyle and circumstances, in order to provide the most appropriate lens implant result to suit their needs. Furthermore, the two eyes are carefully balanced so that they complement each other and provide the greatest range of vision possible, also employing the latest eye implants to achieve this effect. Most of Dr. Tony Stubbs’s patients manage day-to-day vision with little or no dependence on glasses. Poor lighting conditions and fine work, of course, will require glasses and arrangements are made for this following surgery.
Where would I have Surgery?
Dr. Stubbs offers insured patients care at the Victoria Parade Day Surgery Centre in East Melbourne, where the best equipment and nursing staff provide the highest standard of care.
What if I have astigmatism?
Many patients with glasses also have astigmatism and Dr. Stubbs has a special interest in correcting astigmatism.
In order to thoroughly assess the eye, Dr. Stubbs performs corneal topography, which makes a relief map of the surface of the cornea, much like a geographical map of a mountain range. Everybody’s cornea is unique and by performing corneal topography, Dr. Stubbs is better able to understand how he can optimise the outcome from cataract and refractive surgery.
