The Ophthalmology practice at 226 Melbourne Street was originally established by Dr. Glyn Davies in the early 1980's. He very reluctantly decided to retire after enjoying more than 40 years of patient care. He has entrusted the ongoing care of his patients to Dr. Paul Athanasiov who has been working in the practice since early 2014 under the new name of Eye Surgeons SA.

Although the practice has vastly upgraded its technology, we continue to offer the professional and caring approach that many patients came to appreciate from Dr. Davies.

The practice has since expanded to The Tennyson Eye Centre to involve experienced Ophthalmic surgeons Dr. David Handley and Dr. David Worthley. Situated in Kurralta Park, this modern centre is well positioned for patients from the South and West of the city.

    • Macular OCT for diabetic and macular degeneration
    • Optic disc OCT for glaucoma assessment
