Prof. Paul McCartney

About Dr. McCartney

Prof. McCartney graduated from Medicine from the University of Tasmania in 1983 and trained in Ophthalmology at Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney under Professor Fred Hollows.

He has been head of the Ophthalmology Department at the Royal Hobart Hospital and has held an honorary academic appointment at the University of Tasmania since 1992. He was appointed Clinical Associate Professor in 2011.

Paul has always expressed strong clinical interests in cataract, corneal and refractive surgery. This has led him to continuously seek the best technologies in terms of intraocular lenses and cataract surgery techniques. As a result, he is invited to teach and demonstrate surgery internationally. He has performed live cataract surgery in India in 2009 and in Sydney at the International Conference of Ophthalmologists in 1990 before an audience of 1,000 fellow international ophthalmologists.

Paul’s research interests include advancements in specialised intraocular lens use in cataract surgery and the genetics of glaucoma. Paul has a long involvement in providing eye services to needy remote communities. He has worked as a volunteer ophthalmologist in communities in the Torres Strait Islands and Fiji, and since 2003 with the East Timor Eye Programme, treating local people and assisting in training local ophthalmologists.

Paul founded Hobart Eye Surgeons, a private practice in general ophthalmology in 1998. He is the principal of this practice which has developed into an innovative team of highly skilled and trained ophthalmologists. Hobart Eye Surgeons now offers a comprehensive range of leading diagnostic technology and provides professional medical and surgical ophthalmic care in purpose- fitted facilities with patient comfort and consideration in mind. In 2014 Tasmanian Cataract Clinic was incorporated into Hobart Eye Surgeons.
