A look at eye surgery in New Zealand and its many, often colourful, practitioners.This book throws new light on eye surgery from our colonial days to the present. Some early surgeons were itinerants who operated in hotel rooms and advertised like snake-oil salesmen. In contrast, others were at the top of the specialty and were huge contributors to medical education in New Zealand and Australia.Since the 1990s there has been a remarkable ascent of academic ophthalmology, resulting in New Zealand ophthalmologists and ophthalmic researchers becoming recognised internationally. It is a specialty which is serving New Zealanders superbly.


Associate Professor Bruce Hadden graduated from the University of Otago Medical School in 1967, trained in ophthalmology in Auckland and the United States, and practised in Auckland in both the public and private sectors. He led the amalgamation of the Ophthalmological Society of New Zealand with the Australian college, to form the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists. He was made an honorary Doctor of Laws by the University of Auckland in 2007, and a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit (CNZM) in 2012.
