Dr Gray’s specialisms
- LASIK, PRK & Refractive Lens Exchange
Aside from being an experienced LASIK eye doctor, Dr Gray is also an expert in PRK, refractive lens exchange, and many others. You’ll always receive personalised vision care from Dr Gray, and if you're not a good candidate for a particular procedure, he'll suggest an appropriate alternative for you.
- Implantable Contact Lenses
Implantable Contact Lenses (ICLs) are a procedure that offers better quality of vision and lower risk than Custom LASIK for patients who have thinner than normal corneas and high degree of near-sightedness. Dr Gray is an expert when it comes to ICLs - he is the only Dr at Eye Institute to perform this procedure. Click here for more information on ICLs.

Dr Gray has more than a decade of experience, and a special interest in helping patients with high prescriptions (high myopia, high hyperopia and high astigmatism). He is uniquely positioned with special training in this field. Many patients with high prescriptions are referred to Dr Gray because of his reputation for precision and attention to detail. Regular analysis of his results help provide excellent outcomes for these patients.
