*Glaucoma consultations – important information*
Please bring to your appointment a report of an up-to-date OCT scan of the optic nerve and field vision test. Should you need to arrange for either of these please telephone Specialist Optometrist Dr Thomas on 01642 276890. Note that the cost of both tests is payable and not included in Mr Lunt’s consultation fee.

Mr David Lunt is a Consultant Ophthalmologist specialising in cataract surgery, and all aspects of outpatient and surgical care for patients with or at risk of developing glaucoma.

 His role as  Glaucoma Service Lead in South Tees NHS Foundation Trust includes assessing patients who have been told they may have a risk of developing glaucoma, right through to managing advanced cases who have already lost portions of their vision and are rightly concerned that every clinical decision is critical. He is adept at all forms of glaucoma laser including iridotomy and selective laser trabeculoplasty, minimally invasive glaucoma surgical techniques (MIGS), and more traditional glaucoma surgery (trabeculectomy, aqueous shunt surgery).

Mr Lunt is a proficient cataract surgeon and has completed several thousand cataract operations.

Special interests

  • Standard cataract surgery, including complex cases
  • Surgical techniques that combine well with cataract surgery to reduce eye medication burden and glaucoma progression, including minimally invasive glaucoma surgery such as microstent and microshunt surgery
  • Traditional glaucoma surgery including trabeculectomy and aqueous shunt.

Other interests

Mr Lunt works closely with the charity Glaucoma UK, both as a Consultant and Educator. He passionately believes patient communication is the cornerstone of successful management of the individual with glaucoma, through engagement and mutual understanding between the clinician, the patient and their loved ones.
