Eye Surgeons Miranda

The team at Eye Surgeons Miranda

While we will be expanding Eye Surgeons Miranda in the future, at the moment we are a sole practice. This means you can be assured of being treated by our chief surgeon. As you can see from the much abbreviated version of his CV below, Dr Hunt has far more training and teaching experience than the vast majority of suburban eye surgeons, particularly in the exceptionally critical area of retinal treatment.

Dr Adrian Hunt

Dr Adrian Hunt, MBBS MbiomedE FRANZCO - Dr Hunt gained his MBBS in 1995 from the University of Sydney based at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Within five years he had also earned a Master of Biomedical Engineering from the University of NSW. While investigating a rare paediatric condition at The Children's Hospital at Westmead, he developed a strong interest in retinal research. This inspired Dr Hunt to train in general ophthalmology at the Sydney Eye Hospital, becoming a Fellow of The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists in 2006.

With his new qualifications Dr Hunt returned to Westmead Hospital in 2007 to work with the esteemed Professor Paul Mitchell as Retinal Fellow in association with the Westmead Millenium Institute and Centre for Vision Research. Their pioneering work focused on management of AMD, diabetic and other vascular retinopathies, and on systemic diseases and their effects on the eye.

For all his professional accomplishments, Dr Hunt never forgot where he came from. In September, 2009, The Shire native brought his high standards of care home to people of this area, opening Eye Surgeons Miranda and equipping it with the finest ophthalmological instruments available.

Today, Dr Hunt takes time away from this practice to help train future ophthalmologists at Westmead Hospital and also provide expertise in medical retina, macular degeneration and retinal vascular disease at Eye Associates, an internationally recognised eye-care centre in Macquarie Street, Sydney. (So, in essence, when you come to Eye Surgeons Miranda, you will be seen by a Macquarie Street specialist.)

Dr Hunt is married with four young children plus two dachshunds. When he's being Adrian (or Daddy) rather than Dr Hunt, he really enjoys taking his kids to Shelly Beach ocean pool and walking on the esplanade. His favourite places include Lilli Lilli Point, Deeban Spit, Wanda Beach and South West Arm.

Naomi Lanuza

Naomi Lanuza - An orthoptist is an ophthalmogist's right-hand man or, in most cases, woman. While earning a Bachelor of Applied Science (Orthoptics) at university, they learn to assess each patient prior to consultation with the eye surgeon, performing any necessary tests, such as measuring visual acuity, and operating a variety of instruments used to investigate eye problems.

In choosing an orthoptist to work at Eye Surgeons Miranda, we look for solid professional qualifications, maturity and the ability to project a professional appearance. They also should be experienced enough to carry out those tests required for each individual problem encountered. At the same time, any orthoptist who works here must be both resourceful and empathetic. The idea is to make your visit as comfortable and supportive as possible, particularly if you're not as young as you used to be.

Because this is a fully digitalised practice, our orthoptists must not only be computer literate, they should also be able to help you take full advantage of all the new benefits afforded by the most modern technology. This means you can become much more involved in your own care and treatment, thereby gaining a far greater understanding of exactly what is happening.

Dr Michael Rose

Dr Michael Rose, MBBS (Hons 1) BSc(Med) FANZCA - Dr Hunt and Dr Rose first worked together at Royal North Shore Hospital in 2006 and developed a good working relationship. So much so that Dr Rose has become our preferred specialist anaesthetist. Although he doesn't have an office here at Eye Surgeons Miranda, you could well meet him if you undergo any surgical procedure at President Private Hospital.

Besides working with us and Royal North Shore Hospital, Dr Rose provides his anaesthesia services to North Shore Private Hospital, the Mater Hospital, Castlecrag Hospital, Norwest Private Hosital, Dalcross Private Hospital, Delmar Private Hospital and Strathfield Private Hospital. And besides eye surgery, he has special interests in orthopaedic, plastic and dental surgeries.
