Introducing Your Eye Surgery Team

Professional and Individual Care

Choosing a clinic for laser eye surgery or cataract surgery can be a daunting process. At David Gartry we are surrounded by a professional and warm team of optometrists, administration staff and patient education counsellors. Each stage of your surgery journey is therefore covered – from the initial enquiry, through to consultation with your surgeon and then importantly your treatment day and aftercare. Many of David Gartry’s team have been with the practice for over 10 years – they have unparalleled experience in the procedures offered. We look forward to meeting you and guiding you through the process.
