Over the past two years I contacted the office of the Governor-General, informing them that the recipients of an AM, Professor Ivan Goldberg and Kathleen Holmes, OAM, received their honours by falsely claiming to be the founders of Glaucoma Australia.

The irrefutable and documented evidence was provided in my e-book myfightforsight.com to the Governor-General.

This is what I wrote:

I am compelled to inform you that professor Ivan Goldberg, AM, and Kathleen Holmes, OAM, received their honours by deception, by falsely claiming to be the founders of Glaucoma Australia.

My accusation is irrefutably documented in my e-book.

I trust you are investigating my most serious allegations.

I never received a reply nor an acknowledgement of my correspondence.

Just recently I discovered that, the Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd). is the Patron of Glaucoma Australia. Is it any wonder that my information concerning the falsehood of Goldberg and Holmes are swept under the carpet?

I now accuse the Governor-General, and/or his office, of dishonestly siding with the deceitful manipulations of Goldberg and Holmes claims for the Australian honours.

An excerpt from Glaucoma Australia’s statements:

In 1986, ophthalmologist Clinical Professor Ivan Goldberg and glaucoma patient Kathleen Holmes, formed a Steering Committee to create an organisation to support the needs of patients across Australia. By 1988 the Foundation had …

Glaucoma Australia is delighted to announce our new patron, the Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd). The Governor-General will serve as Patron of Glaucoma Australia, …

Documents, included in my e-book, conclusively prove that in fact I am the founder of, what is now called GLAUCOMA AUSTRALIA.

In an attempt to silence me I was shot twice at close range with a 38-calibre revolver.

I brought this to the attention of the American Glaucoma Foundation, which hailed Professor Ivan Goldberg, AM, as a hero.

I drew the attention of Mr David Andrews, the Chief Executive Officer of RANZCO* to the unethical behaviour of professor Ivan Goldberg AM, referring to the chapter in my eBook, which does support my allegations that, Professor Goldberg, is indeed a dishonest person, a Plagiarist.

I followed this up, by informing Mr Andrews about several Ophthalmologists, I accuse of breaching the code of conduct/ethics. One of them stands accused of the criminal act, of perverting the course of justice, by providing a knowingly false statutory declaration into court evidence.

The ‘GENTLEMEN’ referred to are:

  • Professor Ivan Goldberg AM
  • Dr. Heery, Ophthalmologist of Albury
  • Dr. James La Nauze, Ophthalmologist, Melbourne, previously from Albury
  • Dr Michael Delaney, Ophthalmologist, Sydney
  • Mr Laurie Pincott, previously the Chief Executive Officer of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists

In spite of the most serious allegations, indisputably documented in my eBook, the Chief Executive Officer of RANZCO, had this to say:


Dear Mr Kaiser,

I acknowledge receipt of your email but I will not be doing anything with this as you have not sought any specific action.

Yours sincerely,
David Andrews

Given the seriousness of my allegations, I sincerely believe that the onus is on the Chief Executive to investigate allegations, such as breaches of the code of ethics and/or standards, without my prompting! Furthermore, given the high profile of the accused persons, would it be too far fetched to entertain the thought, that the attempt upon my life was indeed financed/sanctioned, by anyone of the accused persons, as an individual? Conspiring with others? Or perhaps even by the Royal College itself?

Furthermore, would the high profile of the accused persons explain the fact that the Albury Police Command is actively hushing-up an attempted Murder?

Thirty plus years have passed since I wrote my booklet: Glaucoma, IT CAN SEND YOU BLIND.

My book, My Fight For Sight, is based upon true, documented information and recorded events, collected over the past 30 years.

New information and statistics are still unavailable to truly understand the dire and sad situation concerning blindness from glaucoma in Australia. 30 years on!

In 1986 the available statistics suggested about 200,000 Australians suffered from glaucoma.

In 2017 medical authorities in Australia put the figure at 300,000!

Medical evidence supports that in fact 20% of those with a family history of glaucoma are at high risk of losing their precious eyesight!

My booklet, Glaucoma, IT CAN SEND YOU BLIND, is no longer for sale. All monies from booklet sales and donations collected are duly accounted for and were handed-over to the ‘National Glaucoma Foundation of Australia’, now known as ‘Glaucoma Australia’.

New and better medication is now available, dramatically improving a more positive outcome for anyone diagnosed with glaucoma!

But sadly, Australia still lags behind the rest of the civilised world, by about 10 to 15 years, in preventing blindness from glaucoma through awareness!

My booklet is now available free of charge from my website at my fightforsight. com

I will bring the issues raised in my book to the attention of our local, state and federal members of parliament, requesting their support for a public inquiry.
