Dr Peter Ingham

Medical Director - BMBS, FRANZCO
 
  • Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists
  • A Founding Member of the Australasian Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery
  • Member American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery
  • Member European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery

Dr Ingham received his fellowship of ophthalmology in 1987 in Adelaide and until 1990 was a visiting specialist to the Royal Adelaide and Whyalla Hospitals in combination with private practice. From 1991 he became a visiting specialist to Port Pirie and Noarlunga Hospitals and clinical adviser in ophthalmology to Ashford Community Hospital. From 1996 he was also a visiting cataract surgeon to Mackay and Melbourne. In all locations co-management with local optometrists, ophthalmologists and medical practitioners was developed to allow for the optimum care of his surgical patients.
 
In 1992 Dr Ingham introduced laser refractive surgery to South Australia at Ashford Community Hospital and in 1996 established the "Ashford Eye & Laser Centre" to cater for his subspecialty in cataract and refractive surgery. Since then Dr Ingham has completed more than 25,000 cases of laser vision correction and over 15,000 cataract procedures. He has also been an investigator for emerging technologies for various international companies including Wavelight Laser AG of Germany, Alcon Surgical USA, Staar Surgical USA and Refractec USA.
 
Dr Ingham developed and relocated to the Adelaide Eye & Laser Centre at 215 Greenhill Road, Eastwood in 1999. The Centre is a purpose built consulting and operating facility for his subspecialty of cataract and refractive laser surgery with full accreditation. This is the first accredited facility of its type in South Australia.
 
All procedures are carried out in a strictly monitored sterile hospital theatre with appropriate support staff and facilities, including registered nurses, technicians, optometrists and the surgeon. All aspects of the centre are rigorously and repeatedly subjected to an independent accreditation process formerly by the ACHS, and more recently by Global-Mark®, ensuring that the highest standards are maintained.
