We are excited to welcome Dr Ye Chen who will be joining the QEI Clinic from December 2019.

Dr. Ye Chen is an ophthalmic surgeon with sub-speciality training in eyelid, lacrimal and orbital surgery (oculoplastics). He has special interests in Asian eyelid surgery, nasolacrimal duct intubation, endoscopic DCR surgery, thyroid eye disease and eyelid reconstruction following tumour excision. Dr. Chen speaks fluent English, Mandarin (普通话) and the Shanghainese dialect (上海话).

Dr. Chen graduated from the University of Melbourne and interned at St. Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne. After winning the Victorian Rhodes Scholarship, he undertook further studies at the University of Oxford (UK), obtaining a DPhil in Medical Science.

Dr. Chen has considerable experience in the treatment of eyelid disorders (including ‘droopy’ eyelids, eyelid malpositions, brow ptosis, eyelid tumours), orbital disorders (including thyroid eye disease, orbital tumours, socket disorders) and lacrimal disorders (‘watery eyes’, blocked tear duct). He has published widely in both scientific and clinical journals and is actively involved in oculoplastics research.
