MBChB, MD, FRANZCO
Dr Jennifer Fan Gaskin is a cataract and glaucoma specialist.
She is a fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO), and a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
She is passionate about eradicating glaucoma blindness, whether by meticulous medical management, state-of-the-art surgery, or a tireless pursuit of new treatment options through her research. She believes every patient deserves individual time and care.
Dr Fan Gaskin realised her passion for ophthalmology during her ophthalmology rotation at the University of Auckland’s Medical School. After graduating with Distinction, she pursued an anterior segment research fellowship and completed a Doctorate of Medicine (MD) thesis on keratoconus. Following her ophthalmology training in New Zealand, she undertook two clinical glaucoma fellowships in 2013-14 in Auckland and Melbourne, respectively. She was then actively recruited to continue with Melbourne’s Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital as a glaucoma specialist. She was also offered a sought-after position at the Centre for Eye Research Australia’s glaucoma unit as a clinical researcher.

- Victorian representative of the Australian and New Zealand Glaucoma Society
- Victorian representative of the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Committee
- Victorian representative of the Younger Fellows Committee
- Examiner of the Ophthalmic Basic Competence and Knowledge Examination
She is a director of the Ophthalmic Research Institute of Australia, a leading organisation dedicated to promoting eye research, and a member of the Ophthalmology Committee for Glaucoma Australia, which is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to patient advocacy and support. She is a regular presenter at local, national and international ophthalmology conferences on glaucoma and her latest research innovations.
