Dr Mark Ellis Talks Eye Health
St Vincent's Private Hospital, Kew
Dr Mark Ellis, Ophthalmologist at St Vincent’s Private Hospital Kew, says “Unfortunately, eye health is not something people tend to think about until something goes wrong – and by then, it’s often too late. Eye disease can affect anyone – no matter what your age, background or gender – and generally, once vision is lost, it cannot be regained again.
The most common eye diseases affecting vision loss are glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and cataracts – all of which have significantly better outcomes if they are detected and acted upon early.
