Dr Heather Mack

Dr Heather Mack (BMedSc, MBBS, MBA, PhD, FRANZCO, FRACS) heads Visual Electrodiagnostics at Eye Surgery Associates.  She trained in Electrodiagnostics, undertaking a two year Fellowship at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary/Harvard Medical School.

Dr Mack is a Senior Associate at Eye Surgery Associates where she practices ophthalmology with a particular interest in Electrodiagnostics and retinal disorders.  The most common visual electrodiagnostic test is the electroretinogram (ERG).  The ERG test of the retina is similar to the electrocardiogram (ECG) test of the heart.  Visual electrodiagnostics, also known as visual electrophysiology, measures these very small signals both in the eye and in the brain.  These tests are offered by Dr Mack at East Melbourne, and can help measure how well the retina and optic nerve work, allowing diagnosis of some disorders of the retina and brain.
