Dr Parth Shah is a highly skilled ophthalmologist based in Canberra. He is the director and principal ophthalmologist at Clarity Eye Surgeons.
Having grown up and trained in Sydney, Parth undertook multiple international surgical fellowships at world renowned institutions in the UK and the USA to develop advanced skills in cataract surgery, strabismus surgery and complex paediatric ophthalmology.
Parth relocated to Canberra in July 2022 in order to address a need for specialised ophthalmology expertise in the ACT, and take the opportunity to build on the highly successful and busy practice developed by Dr David Dickson for over 25 years.
Parth consults at Clarity Eye Surgeons, and operates at Calvary Hospitals in Bruce, offering both public and private surgery. He also supervises registrars and attends to eye emergencies at Canberra Hospital.
Parth’s goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for all of his patients through evidence-based practice, meticulous attention to detail and running an efficient practice with the latest state-of-the-art technology. He prides himself on communicating effectively with patients and helping them make informed decisions about their eyes and vision.
In addition to his clinical work, Parth has a keen academic focus and is very passionate about teaching. He is a Clinical Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney, continues to publish research in scientific journals and is regularly invited to present at local and international ophthalmology meetings.
Parth maintains his appointment and academic links with Sydney Children’s and Prince of Wales Hospitals in Randwick, where he supervises ophthalmology registrars and looks after children and adults with complex eye diseases. He also provides care for disadvantaged rural and remote communities, continuing the work of the late Prof. Fred Hollows through the Outback Eye Service.
