Gordon Wise, MBBS, FRANZCO, is a highly trained and internationally recognized ophthalmologist in Hobart, Tasmania. As head of Tasmanian Eye Clinics, Dr. Wise demonstrates excellence in a range of ophthalmic procedures, including cataract surgery, general ophthalmic surgery, plastic ophthalmic surgery and corneal surgery, including corneal grafting (corneal transplant). Over the course of his career he has performed more than 15,000 cataract surgeries. Thanks to his extensive training and experience, Dr. Wise is able to provide Hobart eye care patients with exceptional vision correction results.
At Tasmania Eye Clinics, Dr. Wise and his team perform advanced "no-stitch, micro-incision" cataract surgery, as well as laser cataract surgery when medically appropriate. The Hobart eye surgeon begins cataract surgery by creating a small, self-sealing incision in the part of the eye that encapsulates the natural crystalline lens. He then uses ultrasound energy to break up the eye's cataractous (cloudy) lens before gently flushing or suctioning out the cataract-diseased pieces. Dr. Wise then replaces the cloudy lens with an intraocular lens implant (IOL) to restore clear vision after surgery. In addition to traditional IOL options, Tasmania Eye Clinics also offers a variety of premium IOL choices, including multifocal lens options that allow patients to see clearly at multiple distances, as well as astigmatism-correcting toric IOLs.Email the Surgeon
Cataract surgery is performed under topical anesthesia, so the patient does not experience any pain and is completely comfortable throughout the entire surgical procedure. Patients who undergo cataract surgery in Hobart with Dr. Wise and his team achieve improved vision at several distances and, in many cases, are able to decrease their dependence on daily prescription eyewear drastically.
In addition to cataract surgery, general and plastic ophthalmic surgery, and corneal surgery, Tasmania Eye Clinics also offers general eye care services, glaucoma management, management of diabetic eye disease and macular degeneration treatment.
