Ophthalmology Services Now Available at Subiaco Private Hospital

Perth residents now have even greater access to vision-saving surgery, with Ophthalmology services expanding to Subiaco Private Hospital.

Subiaco Private Hospital has recently welcomed Ophthalmologists Dr. Lourens Van Zyl, and Dr. CH Khong, and are now offering a range of procedures including cataract removal, lens implantation, and glaucoma surgery.

Featuring two operating theatres and nine overnight beds, Subiaco Private Hospital is a purpose built multi-disciplinary hospital which in addition to Ophthalmology, provides surgical procedures in the specialty areas of ENT, Plastic and Reconstructive, Oral and Maxillofacial and General Surgery.

Subiaco Private Hospital CEO/ Director of Nursing, Natalie Taylor, said the new service means that patients now have additional access to life-changing surgery at a central location that is easily accessible from either the North or South of the river.

“We are committed to providing the highest level of nursing care in a safe environment. We can care for babies as young as six months old because we have paediatric services and can offer overnight stays if required,” Ms. Taylor said.

“Being a day surgery, our wait times are also a lot shorter. The time frame from consultation to surgery is typically around one to two weeks, meaning people aren’t facing extended wait times for surgery.”

“Due to strong demand for Ophthalmic services, we are already expanding the service and bringing other surgeons on board to service the community,” she added.

This new state-of-the-art service offering at Subiaco Private Hospital further cements hospital owner, Cura Day Hospitals Group, as the leader of advanced eye treatment in Western Australia.

In addition to Subiaco Private, the Group also owns a dedicated Ophthalmic day surgery in the area - Perth Eye Hospital, as well as multidisciplinary overnight hospital – West Leederville Private Hospital. Last year Perth Eye Hospital performed close to half of all private cataract procedures undertaken in Western Australia.

Introducing Ophthalmology services at Subiaco Private Hospital strengthens Cura Day Hospitals Group’s commitment to excellence in patient care by ensuring more people than ever before will benefit from improved vision.
