Professional Achievements and Associations
Dr. Greg Moloney graduated with honors from the University of New South Wales – Medicine and later trained at Sydney Eye Hospital in Australia. He came to Vancouver and completed fellowship training at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2010 with Dr. Simon Holland and Dr. David Lin and while working closely with Pacific Laser Eye Centre (PLEC). After his training, he joined the UBC faculty as a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Visual Sciences.
Dr. Greg Moloney returned to Australia in 2012, and continued research and teaching as a clinical lecturer at the University of Sydney. As a refractive surgeon in Australia, he continued to work closely with PLEC and pioneered the treatment of keratoconus with combined custom topography guided surface treatments and simultaneous corneal cross linking with PLEC algorithms, improving patient care for many Australians with keratoconus. Together with Dr Lin and Dr Holland, he published and spoke extensively on these subjects.
Dr. Greg Moloney is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmology. In 2012 he was awarded the Ron Jans Clinical Corneal Research Award from the Canadian Ophthalmic Society. In 2014, 15 and 16 he won first prize in the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery film festival (corneal and refractive section) for video submissions on new cornea surgical techniques. In 2018 He was the recipient of the Troutman award from the Cornea Society for best publication in the society journal by an author under 40. He was the first surgeon in the world to perform DWEK/ DSO supplemented with topical Rho-kinase inhibitor. He was lead surgeon in the Australian keratoprosthesis program from 2014-2021 and convenor of the Sydney Eye Hospital DMEK course from 2015-2020.
With his return to Vancouver in 2021, he is currently a Clinical Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at UBC. It is a great pleasure to welcome Dr. Moloney back into the PLEC family with Dr Lin and Dr Holland. We look forward to incorporating new ideas from Australia to innovate for better algorithms and improve patient care.
