Dr Abi Tenen is a highly experienced and well-respected refractive, corneal and cataract surgeon. Her areas of expertise include LASIK, PRK/ASLA, implantable contact lens, refractive lens exchange, keratoconus and collagen cross-linking, intracorneal rings and inlays, pterygium removal and cataract surgery with premium lens implants. By working closely with a broad range of refractive-based procedures, Dr Tenen is able to offer a customised care plan for each patient.

Dr Tenen’s compassionate manner has led her to be extensively involved in various charity and teaching pursuits, including a long-term appointment as Adjunct Senior Lecturer for the School of Primary Healthcare in the Faculty of Medicine at Monash University. She has worked with technologies running in parallel to her ophthalmic work, including programs using neuroplasticity in order to improve vision.

As a pioneer in her field, Dr Tenen was involved in the introduction of the femtosecond laser to Australia in 2006 and she continues to stay at the forefront of ophthalmic technologies. She is involved in leading research focusing on the use of mesenchymal stem cells in regenerative medicine.
