Dr Kate Rattray
Retinal, Cataract & General Ophthalmology
Dr Kate Rattray has returned home to Tasmania to start practice with Hobart Eye Surgeons. Kate studied ophthalmology at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, where she also completed a Glaucoma Fellowship. During this Fellowship year, Kate performed all of the Glaucoma Unit’s difficult and complex cataract surgeries, along with over 100 glaucoma surgeries.
Kate also has a particular interest in angle closure. She was involved in the International Memantine Trial, Genetic Research and has recently been working on changes in corneal asphericity with cataract surgery. After working as a consultant ophthalmologist in Melbourne, Kate then spent a 6 month fellowship at the Gimbel Eye Centre in Calgary, Canada, a world renowned Cataract and Refractive (LASIK) surgical centre.
Kate will be offering refractive surgery and is happy to see patients for pre-operative work up, as well as any post operative queries you might have. Remember, laser eye surgery isn’t just for the “Generation X”… Whilst Kate is now using toric IOL’s, she can offer laser eye surgery for post cataract patients with residual prescription (particularly astigmatism) from days when the toric lenses weren’t available. There is now a Medicare rebate for such patients.
