Dr Brett Rogers

Specialist

Profile

 Dr Brett Rogers of is one of New Zealand’s most experienced cataract surgeons.

  • Brett has performed almost ten thousand (10,000) cataract operations on Southland, Otago & Central Otago patients.
  • He operates exclusively on cataracts at Southern Cross Hospital.
  • He also performs various YAG Laser Eye Surgery procedures at his private consulting rooms (for glaucoma & cataract-related problems).
  • Brett obtained his MBChB Medical Degree at the University of Otago in Dunedin. He then undertook his Eye Surgery Specialist training at Auckland Hospital and Waikato Hospital, gaining a Fellowships from the Royal Australian & New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (FRANZCO) and as well, gaining a Fellowship from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS).
  • After working for many years at Southland Hospital, treating a wide range of medical eye conditions and performing numerous cataract, eyelid, glaucoma, squint and other eye operations, Brett has for some years worked in a full-time private capacity at "SOUTHERN CATARACT SURGEONS", both at his 'Invercargill Eye Clinic' and his 'Queenstown Eye Clinic', specialising in Cataract Surgery.
  • Brett’s special expertise has always been cataract surgery. He is extremely experienced, has an extremely high success rate and particularly enjoys seeing the huge and rapid difference that cataract surgery makes to his patients’ vision and to their quality of life.
  • Brett has had ten years' experience using premium, astigmatism-correcting intraocular-lenses (toric IOLs), implanting well over 1,000 such toric lenses in recent years. Toric lenses can give even better vision following cataract surgery than regular lenses & Brett now offers the option of toric IOLs to about 50% of his cataract patients.
  • For Queenstown & Central Otago patients, Brett holds regular cataract clinics at the Queenstown Medical Centre, where he provides cataract assessments and cataract follow-up visits for his cataract patients from throughout Central Otago. (Queenstown & Central Otago cataract patients only need to travel out of town for the actual cataract surgery itself, with the preoperative assessment and the postoperative visits all available at Dr Rogers' frequent Queenstown Medical Centre clinics.)
