Glaucoma Screening and Treatment



Dr Alex Buller completed his sub-speciality fellowship in the medical and surgical care of Glaucoma. He regularly attends and presents at both National and International Conferences on Glaucoma Care, and is one of the first Ophthalmologists in New Zealand to use the  surgically implanted i-stent for intraocular pressure control.


The Eye Surgery Hastings provides a comprehensive glaucoma care service, including screening of patients with a family history of glaucoma and other high risk patients, diagnosis and management of ocular hypertension, closed angle glaucoma, open angle glaucoma, normal tension glaucoma, pigmentary glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation glaucoma and developmental glaucoma.


Coupled with Alex’s specialist training we use the latest technology to ensure an efficient and high quality service with digital stereo optic disc photography, updated visual field software for progression analysis, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and enhanced depth OCT scanning of the optic disc.


In addition to medical therapy, we offer Nd:YAG selective laser trabeculoplasty, Micropulse selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), Nd:YAG laser iridotomy, i-stent insertion and surgical trabeculectomy.
