Dr Jo Koppens
Jo is a Specialist Eye Surgeon who joined Milford Eye Clinic in 2005. Her particular sub-specialty interest is glaucoma management.
Jo was born in Hamilton and attended Auckland Medical School. Her Ophthalmology specialist training was with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists through the Auckland training program. She was subsequently awarded UK fellowships in Glaucoma at Nottingham NHS, and Birmingham and Midlands Eye Centre. During these two years overseas she underwent intensive training in complex glaucoma management and surgeries.
Since her return to New Zealand, Jo has served on the board of the Royal Australasian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists.
Jo is now seeing a limited number of new referrals. Some new glaucoma referrals may be directed to our other glaucoma specialist, Dr Dan Gosling.
