Associate Professor Abhishek Sharma is a specialist in both medical and surgical retinal eye conditions.
He completed his Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery from the University of Tasmania in 2004. He undertook his ophthalmology training at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital in Melbourne in 2009, and successfully completed the Royal Australian & New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists Fellowship examinations in 2013.
Prior to his ophthalmology training, he completed a PhD in the field of Public Health and Epidemiology in 2009 from the University of Oxford, as a Rhodes Scholar. His research saw him investigate China’s myopia (short-sightedness) epidemic, developing a pathway for treatment for rural communities.
Dr Sharma went on to complete vitreoretinal surgery and management of all retinal conditions, in adults and children, in Toronto, Canada.
Dr Sharma’s particular specialties include retinal surgery for macular holes, epiretinal membranes and retinal detachments, as well as in treatment for macular degeneration and severe diabetes.
He is the author of “Mindmaps in Ophthalmology” published through CRC Press. Dr Sharma’s free time gets taken up by his two young children and he wouldn’t have it any other way.
