According to Dr Trevor Gray, Re:Vision Sight Correction Centre feels like the reason I became an eye surgeon. It is the culmination of a years-long dream to create a more personalized and individualized patient experience after a 20 year career as the Busiest cataract & vision correction surgeon in Auckland.Book an appointment with Dr Gray
Performed more than 38,000 successful vision correction procedures
Personally performed more than 10,000 LASIK laser vision correction procedures
Performed more than 22,000 cataract operations
Performed more than 1,800 corneal transplants
We have created ways to offer free pro bono vision correction surgery for New Zealanders who have been denied access to Public Hospital funded surgery as well as pro bono laser vision correction for tetraplegic patients. It is our way of making a difference every day in our small way…
I have worked in Public for more than 20years, teaching more than 50 junior ophthalmologists in the art of modern cataract & corneal surgery.
As Clinical Senior Lecturer in Ophthalmology (University of Auckland), I have been lecturing and teaching skills in caring for cataract and cornea patients to undergraduates and postgraduates in both ophthalmology and optometry. Dozens of lectures at prestigious international scientific meetings.
“We have hand assembled a team of the finest ophthalmic professionals in the country and created Re:Vision to revolutionize the delivery of eye care. My team and I love what we do. And when you love what you do, you can’t help being very, very good at it. Patients immediately see the difference. Our positivity, attention to detail and safety, and true caring.”
Dr Gray received triple-Fellowship training at the prestigious Moorfields Eye Hospital, London and Bascom Palmer Eye Hospital, Miami before returning to Auckland 20+ years ago.
Dr Gray has performed over 40,000 major ophthalmic surgery cases in his 20+ year career. He has performed more than 15,000 laser vision correction procedures, 22,000 cataract surgeries, and 1,400 implantable contact lenses (ICLs). He is the most experienced LASIK surgeon now providing this sight—and life—changing service to patients across New Zealand.
20 years of Auckland Public Hospital service. As a Clinical Senior Lecturer in Ophthalmology at the University of Auckland, Dr Gray has been passing his eye-care skills to students in both ophthalmology and optometry for more than 20 years, having taught more than 50 ophthalmologists-in-training the art of modern cataract corneal transplant surgery. He has presented dozens of lectures at prestigious international scientific meetings.
In addition to his work as a clinician and academician, Dr Gray is passionate about serving the public more broadly. His past charitable endeavours include establishing his Buchanan Charitable Foundation in 2010. This Foundation has established the Buchanan Ocular Therapeutics Unit in the University of Auckland, funds ongoing private education of underprivileged girls and boys in NZ, supports the only cataract mission hospital in Swaziland, major funder of DreamWorker organisation in Cape Town helping the unemployed to get a leg up. He is excited to be developing—in concert with Re:Vision’s partner institution Auckland Regional Charity Hospital (ARCH) —a new charitable cataract service for New Zealanders who have been denied access to needed cataract surgery by the public hospital system. He and his colleagues are also providing pro bono laser vision correction for tetraplegic patients.
Trevor is married to Caroline (they met at Medical School). Caroline is a Breast Physician caring for her breast cancer patients. Together, they have two of the coolest ‘kids’ – now young adults. Home is completed with Archie the Schnauzer and Frankie the Dachshund – a busy and friendly pair! As a family, they love the outdoors with a passion for water-sports: paddleboarding, surfing, wakeboarding, hiking and skiing.
A case of leading surgeons deciding to do something different – the Re:Vision sight correction centre provides an unparalleled level of expertise and great eye care every day. And then they do more. When others have down time these guys go and do more pro bono cataract surgery for free, under the umbrella of ARCH (Auckland Regional Charity Hospital), bringing high quality medical care to those in serious need and have been denied care from the Public Hospital System. Because in their book everyone deserves the gift of sight.
