Dr Malcolm McKellar



MB ChB 1990 Auckland; FRANZCO 1998


As the only person in New Zealand trained as both an optometrist and an ophthalmologist, everything I do is dedicated to vision correction. My work focuses on diseases that affect the surface and front of the eye, including cataracts, conditions of the cornea (the eye’s clear front window) and eye tumours.


  • Refractive surgery
  • Diseases of the cornea, anterior segment and external ocular surface including corneal transplantation
  • Cataract surgery
  • Eye trauma and complex anterior segment surgery
