I have a strong interest in medical retinal diseases, and particularly their investigation using visual electrophysiology. Visual electrophysiology measures very small electrical signals in the eye (electroretinogram) and brain (visual evoked potential) and can assist in diagnosis of some disorders of the retina and optic nerve. I am also interested in progress in medical science and am able to offer some of my patients participation in clinical trials. – Dr Heather Mack

Visual electrophysiology testing is offered by Dr Mack at East Melbourne.

Dr Mack is also a Designated Aviation Ophthalmologist for the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).
