Prof Stuart Graham

Head of Ophthalmology Clinical Unit 
Subspeciality:  Glaucoma and Electrophysiology

Professor Stuart Graham completed his medical training at Sydney University, followed by ophthalmology with Fred Hollows and then a 2 year glaucoma fellowship at UBC, Vancouver, Canada. He completed a Master of Surgery in 1996 and a PhD in 2005. Professor Graham is Head of Ophthalmology and Visual Science at Macquarie University Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, and a visiting Professor at the Save Sight Institute, Sydney University. Professor Graham practices as a glaucoma subspecialist, with a special interest in early diagnosis and electrophysiology. He performs SLT surgery for glaucoma, (but no longer does incisional surgery, referring such cases to other members of his team).

His research involves mechanisms of optic nerve damage, including vascular, molecular and genetic factors and new imaging techniques for structural analysis and dynamic retinal vascular changes. At Macquarie University his research team is studying neurodegenerative pathways with a view to developing neuroprotective therapies for glaucoma.

Professor Graham was Chairman of the Ophthalmic Research Institute of Australia 2012-16, a previous RANZCO Board member, and is currently NSW representative of the ANZGIG executive committee. He has over 160 journal publications, several current NHMRC grants and is presently supervising six PhD students and three post-doctoral fellows at Macquarie University.
