Research interests

Dr Males is a consultant ophthalmologist at Sydney Eye Hospital and St Vincents Hospitals. John is a clinical Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney, and the Director of Ophthalmology Training at Sydney Eye Hospital. He is also an examiner for the Ophthalmic Basic Sciences Exam for the Royal Australian & New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists.

Dr Males has research interests and clinical expertise in the areas of Cataract surgery, Laser Vision Correction and Corneal Surgery. John performed the first Descemets' Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK) in Australia in April 2006. DSAEK is a new form of corneal transplantation where only the back part of the cornea is transplanted, resulting in a stronger eye and more rapid recovery in vision. Dr Males is currently performing a prospective clinical trial for treatment of keratoconus with a new treatment known as Collagen Cross Linking. Dr Males is also performing in corneal intra stromal rings (both INTACS and Kerarings) for the treatment of keratoconus, as well as corneal all forms of corneal transplantation. Dr Males performs all forms of laser vision correction surgery for the treatment of short sightedness (myopia), far sightedness (hypermetropia) and astigmatism.
