Dr Reader studied medicine at Flinders University of South Australia graduating from there in 1985. After a number of years as a RAAF medical officer he completed training as a commercial pilot and worked in general aviation. Following this he undertook a post graduate fellowship in aviation medicine in which he has an ongoing interest. He completed his ophthalmology training at the Sydney Eye Hospital before pursuing further general eye studies at the Royal Eye Infirmary in Plymouth, UK. Upon returning from overseas Dr Reader worked as a general ophthalmologist in Sydney before relocating to Queensland.
