Oncology Services

Terrace Eye Centre is the proud home of the Queensland Ocular Oncology Service, provided by Dr William Glasson, Dr Sunil Warrier and Dr Lindsay McGrath. This service has been responsible for the treatment of patients with intraocular and ocular surface malignancies for the past 20 years. We receive patients from all over Queensland, Northern New South Wales and the Northern Territory.

Dr McGrath undertook her specialty ophthalmology training in Queensland. She completed her training at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, with an acting fellow role in the orbital, lacrimal and plastics team. She then went on to complete a further year of subspecialty training in ocular oncology, oculoplastics and orbit at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield, UK. Dr McGrath is a visiting Consultant Ophthalmologist and Supervisor of Training at the Mater Adults Hospital and consults at the Qld Oncology Service.

The Terrace Eye Centre also offers ongoing care in the field of ocular adnexal oncology (eyelid, lacrimal and orbital tumours) through both Professor Tim Sullivan, Dr Sonia Yuen and Dr Matthew Cranstoun.

Professor Sullivan received specialist training at London’s prestigious Moorfields Eye Hospital in the areas of orbital, lacrimal and oculoplastic surgery. He is a world leader in the area of orbital tumours, and is involved in regular speaking engagements on the international circuit. He provides a state-wide service for patients with orbital pathologies including vascular tumours such as cavernous haemangioma, optic nerve tumours such as glioma and meningioma, lacrimal gland tumours and orbital lymphoma. Professor Sullivan also provides an extensive oculoplastic service through the Terrace Eye Centre, which includes surgery to the lacrimal system.

Dr Cranstoun is a new addition to the comprehensive oculoplastics service at Terrace Eye Centre, having done his advanced fellowship training with Professor Sullivan himself. Dr Cranstoun also offers an ocular adnexal oncology service for both adult and paediatric patients

Dr Yuen provides comprehensive care in the field of paediatric ophthalmology. Her area of expertise includes (but is not limited to) conditions such as squints, congenital cataracts, and lacrimal defects in children. Dr Yuen is also trained in the area of oculoplastics and collaborates closely with Professor Sullivan to provide an extremely thorough and extensive service in dealing with tumours of the eyelid and ocular adnexae.

Iransvitreal lesion biopsy, vitreous biopsy for intraocular lymphoma, and endo-resection of choroidal melanoma are also available through our distinguished retinal surgeons Dr Mark Donaldson, Dr Albert Aralar and Dr Michael Hogden.
