Educated in South Africa, Doctor Thomas Eshun-Wilson commenced working as a full-time refractive surgeon in February 2003. Over the course of the year with the Boots Lasik Clinic in Bristol (United Kingdom), Dr Eshun-Wilson was able to perform over 400 Lasik procedures himself, with thousands of pre and postoperative consultations.
Between 2004 – 2006 Dr Eshun-Wilson continued in a range of high-volume clinics until moving to Perth where he worked as a senior registrar at Fremantle Hospital in Perth, Western Australia in a general Ophthalmology capacity.
In March 2007 Dr Eshun-Wilson moved to Hervey Bay and commenced in private practice, as a Comprehensive Ophthalmologist working as an associate for Central Queensland Eye Centre (CQEC) as part of Vision Group Holdings.
The Wilson Eye Centre
In June 2010 Dr Eshun-Wilson opened the WILSON EYE CENTRE in brand new rooms in both Hervey Bay and Bundaberg with the ‘state of the art’ equipment, performing surgery at the Hervey Bay Surgical Centre, St Stephens Hospital Hervey Bay and the Mater Misericordiae Hospital in Bundaberg.
- In 2011 we were the first clinic in Australia to order the new revolutionary Optos 200Tx Retinal Imaging System which allows us to photograph and view 200 degree of the retina instead of the traditional 30 degrees.
- In May 2012 I operated on my 2000th Cataract patient in the Wide Bay region.
- In January 2013 we were the first clinic in the country to have the LipiView & Lipiflow System installed in our Bundaberg rooms. This ‘first of its kind’ device treats blepharitis (meibomian gland dysfunction) related dry eyes.
- In November 2013 I pioneered the use of the Ologen Implant in Australia. This is used during
glaucoma surgery to augment Trabeculectomy blebs.
