Dr Gaskin says he enjoys being regularly challenged by his practice and is excited about his new role at Auckland Eye.

“I love the attention to fine detail required to refine a surgical technique so that better outcomes can be achieved for my patients. Neuro-ophthalmology adds a further dimension to my practice, being more intellectual rather than technical, it challenges me regularly,” he says.
“I look forward to utilising my skills and experience to enhance the day to day life for the public and private patients of Auckland.”
