Dr Marina Rayside has extensive experience in cataract surgery and complex adult and paediatric corneal disorders and a keen interest in corneal grafts, keratoconus management and pterygium surgery.
Trained at the University of the West Indies, she is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, a member of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (London), and a fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists. Dr Rayside has worked in Barbados, the UK and the public sector in Western Australia for over 20 years and completed a corneal fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital and Great Ormond Hospital for Children in London.
She was also honoured to work with esteemed Ophthalmic Surgeon, Mr Frank Larkin in the UK.
“I like the way that the eye is a window to the body as a whole,” she says. "I most enjoy talking with my patients and finding out their concerns and being able to help.
It is very satisfying when I can improve their vision and their quality of life.” Dr Rayside recently opened her own practice, Kookaburra Eye Clinic in Kelmscott. She began operating at Perth Eye Hospital earlier this year and also maintains public appointments at Fremantle Hospital and Perth Children’s Hospital.
