Dr Anil Arora is an ophthalmologist who has been practising in Central Coast and in Sydney since 1998. Dr Arora completed his medical degree through the University of Sydney in 1985 and after carrying out his internship and residency training at Royal North Shore, Westmead and Royal Prince Alfred Hospitals, he embarked on a career in ophthalmology. He was one of the first to complete a Masters of Medicine in Ophthalmology with a thesis on retinal electrophysiology and carried out five years of specialist training in ophthalmology from the Sydney Eye Hospital from 1988 to 1993.
In 1997 – 1998 Dr Arora completed a clinical fellowship in “Diseases and Surgery of the Retina and Vitreous” from the University of Texas in Houston. He then began practicing on the Central Coast and Sydney’s North Shore and has established himself as a respected ophthalmologist and has performed surgeries on tens of thousands of patients over the past decade. He brought retinal surgery to Central Coast and this meant that patients no longer had to travel to Sydney for these procedures.
Dr Arora also saw the need for laser vision correction services on the Central Coast and carried out further postgraduate training in laser refractive surgery and was one of the first to obtain a Graduate Diploma in Medicine (Refractive Surgery) from the University of Sydney. He decided to establish a state-of-the-art laser refractive centre on the Central Coast. Laser Vision Clinic Central Coast is now a reality and satisfies this need. Dr Arora is joined by a team of other highly-trained refractive surgeons as well as specialist ophthalmic nurses and administrative staff to provide a truly outstanding first-class laser refractive facility for the residents of Central Coast and surrounding areas.
Dr Arora has practices in Gosford, Long Jetty, Woy Woy and Wahroonga and is a Visiting Medical Officer at the Central Coast Day Hospital, Brisbane Waters Private Hospital and the Sydney Adventist Hospital.
Dr Arora has a strong interest in ophthalmology in developing countries and carries out surgeries and training of doctors on a regular basis in India and for some years was on the International Advisory Panel for the Indian Journal of Ophthalmology. He is a fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists and a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.
