Dr Carolyn Ross
Paediatric and general ophthalmology, corneal disease and cataract surgery

I am a general ophthalmologist with subspecialty expertise in cornea, cataract and paediatrics.

I completed my medical degree at the University of Sydney and ophthalmology training at Sydney Eye Hospital. I gained particular experience with complex paediatric ophthalmology as the Senior Registrar in the Professorial Unit.  My Cornea and External Eye Disease Fellowship was undertaken in Adelaide with world renowned Professor Coster who treated patients from across Australia and Asia and who excelled in managing corneal infections and transplants and complicated cataracts.

On returning to Sydney I commenced private practice and have worked in Hurstville for over 20 years.  I am a Senior Consultant at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead where I conduct a Corneal Clinic.  I enjoy the complex nature of ophthalmology in the public hospitals, collaborating with other colleagues and teaching future generations of eye specialists. I also perform volunteer surgery in Cambodia where I work with dedicated teams to restore vision in people in rural communities.

As a Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney I teach medical students as well as training ophthalmologists.  I conduct the paediatric component of the university’s Master of International Ophthalmology and partake in clinical research.
