Eye guys see value in CSR

A DONATION by a group of leading Gold Coast eye surgeons is set to enhance the sight of fauna at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

Vision Eye Institute surgeon Dr Darryl Gregor donated the German-made Zeiss operating microscope to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary vet Michael Pyne for use in the Sanctuary’s animal hospital.

The microscope became available when the Institute recently upgraded operating equipment at its Southport surgery. It will allow the Sanctuary to perform eye surgery on a bird as tiny as 20 grams, pin broken bird legs or work on the abdomen of something as tiny as a frog.

Southport-based Dr Gregor is one of the world’s leading authorities on eye care. A recognised pioneer in Australian cataract and refractive surgery, he has performed more than 20,000 Lasik (laser) eye surgeries and thousands of cataract and other vision-restoration procedures.

In 1991, he became one of the first ophthalmologists in Australia to perform laser surgery to correct vision.

He has since travelled the globe extensively to keep informed of future trends and techniques to enable delivery of the best treatments to his patients.
