A dedication to enhancing vision and improving lives

“Sight is a function of the eyes; vision is a function of the heart”

When you place your trust and the quality of your surgical outcome in Dr Leo Sheck, you can rest assured you’re in the hands of an internationally trained, highly respected practitioner. But it isn’t just a suite of qualifications that sets Leo apart; this is a person fully committed to making a significant difference to the quality of his patients’ lives.

Delivering excellence begins from the first appointment, when Leo takes additional time to gather deeper insight into the person he is working with, not just the condition he is treating. True excellence comes from a rare combination of learning, improvement and continual critique. And the foundational lesson is human to human understanding and connection.

A series of deliberate educational choices has earned Leo a place along side the luminaries in his field. This gives him open access to global excellence across every aspect of delivery including the innovation that keeps his practice at the forefront of advancements in ophthalmology.

A respected ophthalmic surgeon with a strong social conscious, Leo dedicates much of his time consulting and operating within the public system to minimise waiting times for people. He has also been chairperson of the Save Sight Society of New Zealand between 2019 and 2023, and now serves as a director. Presently, he is establishing a scholarship programme in his name to support the education pathways for the brightest minds who have chosen this specialty.

Leo is a partner in Retina Specialists, a practice based in Auckland, New Zealand. Collectively, the partnership provides an unrivalled level of expertise via a combination of building trust and confidence with people, alongside the most effective treatments using the most advanced technology.
