Dr Gregory Moloney, Dr Mark Gorbatov and myself have recently performed the first combined vitrectomy, Baerveldt tube implant and Boston Keraoprosthesis (pictured) in Australia at Sydney Eye Hospital. The patient was legally blind with a visual acuity of 1/60. Within days of the procedure, his vision has improved to 6/9. The patient is “over the moon” so far with the results and is now able to walk around independently with out bumping into objects or falling over.
