Dr Brad Townend enjoys living and working on the Central Coast/Hunter region with his wife and children. He completed his medical degree with honours at the University of NSW and went on to subsequently complete a master’s degree in Public Health at UNSW. Following this Brad completed a master’s degree in Ophthalmic science at the University of Sydney. He worked for several years at Gosford, Wyong and John Hunter Hospitals before completing 5 years of extensive eye training through Sydney Eye Hospital. He is a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists, and a member of the Australian Cataract and Refractive Surgery Association.
Brad participates in regular work for the Fred Hollows Foundation and previously took 6 months ‘off work’ and worked for the Fred Hollows Foundation in Nepal, the Pacific islands and Alice Springs. This work has enabled him to contribute to the eye health of thousands of patients in under-privileged areas, and as a result Brad has learned a lot about the world, ophthalmology and himself during these adventures!
Brad is currently in private practice at Coastwide Eye Surgery and serves as an ophthalmologist. He operates at Central Coast Day Hospital and both Gosford and Wyong public hospitals where he acts as the head of department for ophthalmology. Brad enjoys the saxophone, cricket and cycling.
