Andrew is an established eye surgeon in Melbourne with a special interest in cataract surgery.
It was the Federal Government’s decision to cut the Medicare rebate for cataract surgery in 2009 which prompted Andrew to become an active member of the ASO.
From 2012-2014 he served as ASO Vice President.
Andrew was a previous board member of the Independent Ophthalmic Network (ION).
Outside of his private practice work he has been involved in public hospital and medical student teaching, as well as being an examiner in pharmacology with The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists.
He has spoken at ophthalmology conferences both in Australia and abroad, as well as providing voluntary eye surgery in the South Pacific.
Andrew says he is passionate about helping to ensure the ASO exists as an organisation relevant to ophthalmologists at every stage of their career.
