Dr Malcolm McKellar understands how precious sight is. A skilled surgeon, he takes time to understand your needs, communicates clearly
and uses cutting edge technologies. He’s also the only person in New Zealand trained as both an optometrist and ophthalmologist.
He specialises in diseases that affect the external surface and front part of the eye. This includes conditions such as cataract,
refractive error, corneal disease, pterygium, allergic and viral conjunctivitis, tumours of the conjunctiva and iris, blepharitis and dry eye.
Dr McKellar performs LASIK, cataract and corneal transplant surgery, implants toric, multifocal and phakic IOLs
and removes pterygia and eye tumours.
Most patients are referred by their optometrist, general practitioner or other eye specialist,
and he has clinics in Riccarton, Ferrymead, Rangiora, Hokitika and Queenstown.
