About Neil Avery

I grew up in Wellington then attended the University of Otago for undergraduate medical training.  While on elective in Jamaica I developed an interest in ophthalmology. I completed my internship and general ophthalmology training at Wellington and Dunedin hospitals, followed by 2 years of fellowship training in retinal diseases and vitreoretinal surgery. I continue to make regular trips to Jamaica to help provide outpatient ophthalmic services and perform small incision cataract surgery and pterygium surgery.
