Our Story

Bacchus Marsh & Wyndham Eye Clinics were created to help improve the quality of lives within the community of western Melbourne, Victoria. Our mission is to give patients the opportunity to access high quality eye health care without having to travel long distances into Melbourne.

Part of our mission included the establishment of two eye clinics, one in Bacchus Marsh, the other in Wyndham, which was the realisation of a dream shared by a group of eye specialists who wanted to see world-class eye care and research take place right here in regional Victoria.

Our team of highly experienced Ophthalmologists understands that your eyes and vision are irreplaceable gifts. With excellence in clinical knowledge, experience, state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and facilities, we are able to provide you with the best possible care for you and your eyes.
