Dr Arthur Karagiannis, Cataract Surgeon/ Eye Surgeon, Welcomes you to Specialist Eye Surgeons SA

COVID – 19
Dr Karagiannis and staff have the wellbeing and health of all our patients as our highest priority.
Dr Karagiannis is continuing to practice and see his patients where treatment must continue.
We are open and available for emergency consultations and TELEHEALTH consults.
Cataract Assessments will be undertaken at a later date.
Contact 83326362 for more information.

During this unprecedented time we have made a number of changes to the running of the practice to reduce the risk to patients and staff.
Dr Karagiannis is progressively reviewing all upcoming appointments and triaging them. Our staff are contacting patients and advising of new appointment times.
All surgery has been postponed until the ban is lifted and The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmology and The Government deem it is safe to proceed once COVID -19 is no longer a significant threat to the community.

An Emergency is determined if one of the following symptoms is experienced:

– a sudden loss or change in vision
-an injury or trauma to the eye
– severe or persistent pain to the eye and especially if vision is affected
– red eye with discharge (especially contact lens wearers)
– sudden onset of floaters
– intermittent flashes.
– double vision

A referral may be required from your GP or Optometrist.
We thank you for your understanding and patience.
Wishing you all good health.
Dr Arthur Karagiannis and Team

Welcome to Specialist Eye Surgeons SA incorporating Cataract Centre SA, originally founded in 2001, as Eastern Suburbs Eye Centre, by Dr Arthur Karagiannis. Specialist Eye Surgeons SA is equipped with the latest technology for the diagnosis and investigation of eye conditions.

Dr Arthur Karagiannis, a highly experienced cataract surgeon, established Cataract Centre SA, to reflect the highest standard of care that is required to achieve the best outcome for patients undergoing cataract surgery.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is necessary when a patient’s vision has started to become affected by cataract(s). A cataract is the gradual clouding of the crystalline lens inside the eye. Cataract Surgery involves the removal of the cloudy cataractous lens, and replacing it with an artificial intraocular lens. If both eyes are affected, they are usually operated a few weeks apart.

Intravitreal Injections

Intravitreal injection of a drug into the eye is a very common and effective treatment option for a number of eye conditions, including wet age-related macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusions and diabetic maculopathy. They are very effective for treating these conditions, particularly when the problem is caught early. They are also very effective at preventing further vision loss. Vision is known to improve in a significant proportion of patients.

Laser Vitreolysis / Laser Floater Treatment

Laser Floater Treatment (LFT) is a non- invasive procedure that is performed in rooms and can eliminate the visual disturbances that are caused by eye floaters, “cob webs”, or specs that float in your field of vision. LFT involves the application of nano-second pulses of laser light to evaporate the eye floaters. The floater’s collagen and hyaluronin molecules are converted into a gas which is absorbed into the vitreous.
