Dr Hunt has expertise in diagnosis of conditions of the retina. He operates weekly on patients with cataract, pterygium and eyelid conditions. He also manages many diabetic and glaucoma patients.
Dr Adrian Hunt was awarded a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) from the University of Sydney in 1995 and a Master of Biomedical Engineering (MBiomedE) from the University of NSW in 2000 where he investigated the biomechanics of the human cornea.
He then went on to train in Ophthalmology at the Sydney Eye Hospital, becoming a Fellow of The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (FRANZCO) in 2006.
Dr Hunt is a medical retina sub-specialist in addition to being a general ophthalmologist. Since completing a Retinal Surgery Fellowship with Professor Paul Mitchell at Westmead Hospital, he has been a prominent contributor to the field, which focused on the management of age-related macular degeneration, diabetic and vascular retinopathies. He continues to research this important field as a University of Sydney PhD Candidate under the supervision of Professor Mark Gillies at the Save Sight Institute at Sydney Eye Hospital. His thesis examines real world outcomes of intravitreal treatment for retinal vein occlusion. He has authored, presented and reviewed international and national peer reviewed research.
As a Senior Staff Specialist at Westmead Hospital he is involved in training future Ophthalmologists at his clinic and theatre list. At his main practice in Miranda, Dr Hunt offers expert care of cataract, glaucoma and delivers intravitreal injections for macular degeneration, diabetic and vascular retinopathies. He also consults in Macquarie Street in the CBD, and visits Bathurst fortnightly confining his practice to medical retinal conditions in those locations.
Dr Hunt is a Shire local married with four young children, plus two dogs. When he is being “Adrian” , rather than Dr Hunt, he really enjoys taking his kids to Shelly Beach ocean pool and walking on The Esplanade.
