Tim graduated from medical school in Australia with first class honours, going on to specialize in Ophthalmology in Melbourne. He has also completed postgraduate studies in the United States on a full scholarship as well as an anterior segment ('front of eye') surgical fellowship where he developed expertise in complex cataract, oculoplastic and glaucoma procedures.

Tim believes in a collaborative approach to patient care with other eye-care and medical professionals. He is a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO).

Dr Cheong will be relocating to the United Kingdom later this year for further subspecialization in ophthalmic surgery. He looks forward to offering the additional skills he will acquire to benefit his patients after returning to Australia.
