Perth Eye Hospital Laser Team - Nurses, Zeiss support, Aculase staff and Dr Ian Chan

Dr Ian Chan has been performing refractive eye surgery since 2007 and is one of Perth's most experienced and highly qualified refractive surgeons. He has a particular interest in correcting abnormal eyes using refractive surgery techniques which require more advanced expertise with the lasers compared to standard refractive surgery. Dr Chan is the first and only surgeon in Perth to perform SMILE laser eye surgery since 2015.  

Dr Chan is the first surgeon in Perth to use topographic guided laser treatment on Keratoconus.  He also uses laser treatments on many patients with corneal scars and patients with corneal transplants.  He is one of the first surgeons in Perth to perform corneal transplantation with partial thickness corneal graft created with laser.   He has implanted more Keraring implants using the Zeiss Visumax laser than any other surgeon in Australia.  Dr Chan has also introduced minimally invasive iontophoresis corneal cross-linking for the treatment of keratoconus to Perth. He has spoken locally and internationally on SMILE eye surgery and laser treatment on abnormal cornea at conferences.
