Our Laser Surgeons

Highly experienced refractive eye surgeons

Headed by Dr Peter Stewart, our team of Ophthalmic surgeons have now carried out over 60,000 LASIK vision correction procedures in Australia, and have trained in excess of 400 fellow surgeons and optometrists throughout Australasia and South-East Asia in vision correction techniques and procedures.

  • Dr Peter Stewart, our founder and medical director, pioneered the LASIK procedure in Australasia in July 1995.
  • All our doctors are highly experienced refractive eye surgeons, having practiced in Australia and overseas. They are members of the Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists.
  • We believe 100% in our results. 5 of our surgeons, our General Manager as well as 34 staff members, their families and more than 130 of our affiliated optometrists have successfully undergone the LASIK procedure at Laser Sight.
  • To date we have performed over 60000 successful LASIK procedures, with results that speak for themselves: over 99% of our patients no longer have to wear glasses or contact lenses in their everyday life and for driving.
  • We train eye surgeons in the LASIK procedure.
  • We are also involved in the training of surgeons for the ICL procedure.
  • Dr Peter Stewart, Dr Marc Wei and Dr Laurence Sullivan have all had LASIK surgery.

Peter Stewart

Dr Peter Stewart is the Director of Surgery at Laser Sight. He graduated from the University of Queensland in 1973 and began General Medical Practice in far western Queensland. Following an inspirational meeting with Professor Fred Hollows, Peter began his training in Ophthalmology in Sydney with Prof. Hollows.

Dr Stewart has been a progressive and innovative surgeon on the Sunshine Coast for the past thirty three years. During the early 1990s he pioneered 'no stitch' cataract surgery in Australia.

Peter's aim, initially for emmetropia (no glasses) following cataract surgery, continues to drive his enthusiasm for refractive surgery.

Peter's dream was to establish a team of specialists in cataract, retinal, oculo-plastic and refractive surgery, and link this with a Day Surgery facility. He has achieved this with the Sunshine Coast Eye Care Specialists, Sunshine Coast Day Surgery and Laser Sight at Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

Laser Sight has training centres, theatres and consultation rooms in other areas of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia and Tasmania to which patients travel from around the world.

Peter is dedicated to excellence in the training and education of Eye Surgeons and Eye Care Practitioners throughout Australasia, and was the LASIK trainer of ophthalmologists in Australasia and has now trained more than 300 ophthalmologists since the establishment of Laser Sight in 1996.

Dr Stewart has lectured and presented papers extensively in USA, Sth America, Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Philippines, Jakarta, New Zealand and Australia.
