Philip graduated from the University of Melbourne with First Class Honours in 2003. He is a highly experienced optometrist and contact lens practitioner having practised for over 16 years in a wide range of clinical settings in Melbourne and regional Victoria. With his thoroughness of care he maintains a loyal client following from his previous practice location in Doncaster.
Myopia management is Philip's particular area of clinical interest and expertise. He keeps up to date with the latest published research on myopia control and is a contributing member of a global forum of highly-regarded myopia control experts from around the world to ensure his patients receive the best advice and treatment strategies available. He also writes for the international children's vision blog My Kids Vision to help raise public awareness of children's vision problems.
Qualified in ocular therapeutics, Philip is endorsed to prescribe scheduled medications for eye treatments. He is fluent in both English and Chinese (Cantonese).
This optometry clinic exists to make a difference. To enhance people's lives with world-class preventative eye care for all.
Our optometrist Dr Philip Cheng established this clinic because he is passionate about helping children and adults see better. He also recognises a need in today's increasingly retail-driven optical industry to give patients a choice where clinical care comes first. We provide a high level of personal attention and trusted professional services that our valued clients have come to expect.
With a very high degree of myopia himself, Philip knows exactly what it is like to live with this eye condition and the very real eye health risks that come with it. Unfortunately myopia control options didn't exist when he was young to prevent his eyes from worsening. Now, it's certainly possible to help kids with myopia and Philip is determined to use his expertise and knowledge in this field to make a difference for the eyesight and eye health of today's children growing up to be adults of tomorrow.
