While working as an anaesthetist with Project Orbis, a flying eye hospital travelling to underprivileged regions, Dr Patrick Versace discovered that his real passion lay in ophthalmology. Today, he is a highly experienced cataract and refractive surgeon, who has performed thousands of vision correction procedures. Dr Versace is continually involved in trialling and developing new treatments and technology, allowing him to stay up to date with the latest advances in this area. He specialises in lens surgery to correct age-related long-sightedness (presbyopia), with particular expertise in using implantable lenses (KAMRA, Presbia and Raindrop inlays) and multifocal lenses. He also has considerable experience in laser eye surgery (LASIK, SMILE®, ASLA/PRK), refractive lens exchange and laser cataract surgery. This includes being among the first to use LASIK for laser eye surgery and helping to contribute to its development. Dr Versace can offer patients access to the latest option in intraocular lens technology.
Dr Patrick Versace was recently invited to present at a symposium on intraocular lenses (IOLs) at the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) 2018 Congress in Adelaide.
Titled Refractive Surprises after Cataract Surgery. Causes, Prevention and Management, the symposium involved a comprehensive discussion about optimising visual outcomes following cataract or lens implant surgery. Topics included patient selection for the different types of IOLs, counselling on alternative options, calculating IOL power, risk factors for dissatisfaction following surgery, management of surgical complications, lens exchange and supplementary laser vision correction.
Dr Versace actively undertakes research projects in the area of refractive surgery and has published a number of scientific papers. He was involved in research into laser vision procedures, including early techniques and, more recently, Zyoptix. He also has research interests in intraocular lenses, specifically lenses that correct presbyopia. Dr Versace regularly participates in FDA and TGA clinical trials.
Dr Versace spent one year working with Project Orbis operating and teaching ophthalmic surgery and anaesthetics in Central and South America. He is also part of an ophthalmologist teaching program in Burma, teaching local surgeons cataract surgery.
