Eye Care Specialists
Dr. McKee completed his undergraduate medical degree at Otago University, New Zealand. He then underwent specialist training in ophthalmology in Queensland.
After completion of his general ophthalmology training, he embarked on sub-specialty training in refractive (laser vision correction) surgery, corneal and cataract surgery at the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital in the United Kingdom.
One of his key areas of interest is related to treatment of corneal and anterior segment problems, including partial thickness corneal transplantation and cross-linking for keratoconus. He also has a keen interest in glaucoma and did sub-specialty training in this area at the Hong Kong Eye Hospital.
There are a variety of ocular disorders that require surgical management, either with medical laser treatment, a minor operation conducted in our rooms or a surgical procedure requiring admission to a Day Surgery Facility. Your doctor will discuss the various treatment options available for your condition and together, you can decide on the best management plan.

New patients will be asked to provide relevant information on a patient file card.

Low Vision Clinic
The Low Vision Clinic is a free service provided by Eye Care Specialists Sunshine Coast for patients with visual impairment that require assistance to better function in daily life.
Each low vision session takes one hour. It should be stressed that this is not treatment of the condition, but rehabilitation and counselling.
Rehabilitation allows patients to make best use of their remaining vision.
To maintain and enhance quality of life using lighting techniques, magnifiers and viewing techniques. The clinic has an extensive range of magnifiers and other visual aids such as closed circuit television (CCTV).
We can also arrange home visits from an orientation and mobility instructor from the Guide Dogs Association of Queensland.
