Dr Richard

Ophthalmic and Oculoplastic Surgeon

Ophthalmic and Oculoplastic Surgeon


Dr Parker is committed to achieving the best outcomes for his patients.

Dr Parker completed his undergratuate studies in Sydney, followed by medical training at Flinders University, SA. He completed his general medical training at Liverpool Hospital, NSW. He completed ophthalmology training at Sydney Eye Hospital and then further training at Royal North Shore Hospital and Westmead Hospital. He completed his fellowship in oculoplastic surgery at the world-renowned Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, UK.

He holds a Masters of Medicine (Ophthalmic Science) from the University of Sydney and now is a clinical lecturer in this program. He is active in clinical research and has published in peer-reviewed journals. He has been actively involved in the training of upcoming surgeons in Australia and the UK.

Before any surgery, he will take the time necessary to ensure you understand your treatment options and any non-surgical options available. His surgical technique is of the highest quality. After surgery, he will manage your recovery and direct any further treatment necessary. He will always keep you, your local doctor, and any other relevant specialists or practitioners, informed of your progress, and will engage other subspecialists in your care if required. Once your surgery has been successfully completed, he will explain any further care necessary.
