Multidisciplinary care is increasingly recognised as a key factor in delivering comprehensive healthcare services and achieving optimal patient outcomes. We place great value on the role of education in fostering a strong culture of clinical and scientific excellence – not only internally and with our ophthalmology colleagues, but also with other medical and allied healthcare professionals. Many of our doctors are extensively involved with teaching and examining medical students, optometry students, optometrists, GPs and ophthalmology trainees.
We’re passionate about sharing our knowledge with other healthcare professionals (HCPs) to ensure all Australians receive best-practice ophthalmic care.
That’s why we created SHARED VISION – a network that encourages and supports collaboration with our optometric and GP colleagues through various educational activities. In addition to this, Vision Eye Institute provides a dedicated Clinical Relationships Team and also offers clinical placements for optometrists in the process of becoming therapeutically endorsed and for students.

Patients who have been referred to an ophthalmologist are often anxious, highlighting the importance of a smooth and seamless referral process. That’s why we have a dedicated, clinically qualified team to assist you and your patients every step of the way. Our Clinical Relationship Managers actively seek feedback so that we can continuously improve our services.
The Clinical Relationships Team is also responsible for managing Vision Eye Institute’s program of educational activities, including our popular national webinar series.

As a patient-focused company, Vision Eye Institute aims to deliver the best possible clinical outcomes. To achieve this, our practice must continue to evaluate and innovate.
Vision Eye Institute’s doctors have created a culture that emphasises rigorous clinical review. Through regular, methodical and comprehensive review of all facets of clinical and surgical practice, our doctors can readily benchmark themselves against best-practice outcomes. The demand for our doctors to share their results and experiences at scientific conferences, both locally and overseas, is testament to our ability to deliver a consistently high standard of patient care and clinical outcomes.
Due to the size of our organisation, we are able to support our doctors with a dedicated research team. This team is responsible for translating the data into peer-reviewed research articles and extending the group’s research interests.
In the past 5 years, Vision Eye Institute doctors have published more than 150 articles in local and international peer-reviewed journals, which is greater than any other private ophthalmic group in the country.
Given our strong presence within the scientific community, we are also often approached to conduct clinical trials on behalf of companies. This, in turn, provides our doctors with an opportunity to access the very latest clinical and surgical technology – a significant benefit that allows our patients to be at the forefront of ophthalmic care.
