An appointment with
Dr Anne Malatt
When you come to see Doctor Anne Malatt, we will make the experience as enjoyable as we can. Many people find it stressful to see any doctor, let alone one who looks in your eyes, and some find that having problems with their eyes is frightening and/or frustrating. We understand this and offer lovely helpful staff and a relaxed and caring waiting room, and we try our best not to keep you waiting too long, as this can cause us stress too!
Anne schedules longer appointments than is usual, to make time and space to be with you. She talks with you about your eyes and your general health. She tests you for glasses if need be, and examines you for all common eye conditions, including glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration.
Doctor Anne Malatt explains your eye problems in the context of your general health and wellbeing, and then offers you advice and suggests treatment options. She prescribes gentle healing remedies where possible; drugs for the treatment of eye diseases where required; and loves to perform surgery if that is what is needed. She is trained in all general eye surgery, but specialises in cataract, pterygium and eyelid surgery. She will do whatever she feels is in your best interests, including referring you to other practitioners if need be.
