Ms. Kate Coleman

Kate Coleman trained as a general ophthalmic surgeon before sub-specialising in Orbital, Oculoplastic and ophthalmic oncology. She started her practice in Blackrock Clinic in 1996 and is also a consultant in the Mater University Hospital and Beaumont University Hospital (honorary) Dublin. Kate has a special interest in rehabilitation and reconstruction of the eyelid area, in particular to optimise eye protection and comfort. She has spent many years evolving techniques for treating facial asymmetry and spasm eg post Bells Palsy and has published two text books on the use of Botulinum Toxin.
Kate is passionate about preventing needless sight loss and her charity, founded in 2006, to implement eye care in Africa, continues to be led from Norway : www.righttosight.no.
She has invented a change-alert WebApp called iKey®: www.iKey.ie to detect early glaucoma before significant sight loss and for everyone to track their own retinal photo.
