Dr Todd Goodwin
Owner & Ophthalmic Surgeon – MB BS, FRANZCO
Born and bred in North Queensland, Dr Todd Goodwin went to Ignatius Park College in Townsville. Undertaking his ophthalmology training in QLD, Todd is the first and only ophthalmologist in Australia (to date) trained at James Cook University medical school.
His formative years of medical experience were undertaken at The Townsville Hospital, Mt Isa Hospital, Weipa Hospital, Tully Hospital, Ayr Hospital and Bowen Hospital. Todd believes strongly in providing quality eye care for all and has made voluntary contributions to third-world ophthalmology services in Myanmar. Todd is also committed to the improvement of vision locally and helps with the rural outreach ophthalmic service to Longreach, Palm Island and Cape York.
Todd and his wife are both from Townsville. Together they made the decision to return home so their kids, Lucas and Addison, could be closer to their extended family and enjoy the same upbringing that they were privileged to have.
