Dr Mark Loane: Auchenflower Eye Specialist

Vision Eye Institute’s Dr Mark Loane AM has been featured in The Australian, in an article acknowledging star Australian Rugby Union players.

Dr Loane was a celebrated member of the Wallabies and his strength and speed earned him the nickname, ‘A Train Without a Station’. He played his first Test in 1973 and his last in 1982, before becoming the respected ophthalmic surgeon we know him as today.

In this article, journalist Wayne Smith commemorates his 50-year career as a rugby writer by putting together his best Australian rugby team of that half-century. Those who are familiar with Dr Loane’s career will not be surprised to see him among this impressive line-up of players.
