The Northern Eye Centre
The Northern Eye Centre is a specialist eye clinic providing medical and surgical services for the treatment of all aspects of eye disease. We work closely with general practitioners and optometrists, assisting in the management of patients with eye problems, especially the growing need for cataract surgery and retinal disease treatment. With the principal practice based in Heidelberg in Melbourne's north, the Centre is headed by Dr Saf Bassili, who has over 20 years of experience working at leading eye hospitals in the USA, UK and Australia. The sophisticated equipment available at the Centre allows us to carry out many procedures at our practice without the need for patients to attend hospitals.
Eye disorders such as cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and age related macular degeneration can greatly impact our lives. Demographic and dietary trends in Australia demonstrate that there is an increasing incidence of eye disease with high risk of vision loss. As we live longer and make various lifestyle choices, or through inherited genes, we are susceptible to suffer from a variety of those eye conditions. New treatments and surgical procedures, combined with improved diet and lifestyle changes, open a wide range of management options for our patients. Innovative diagnostic technologies can identify eye diseases earlier on, giving patients and their doctors the opportunity to initiate treatment before long lasting damage occurs. Our practice has the latest in technology and equipment for diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of eye diseases.
