Our Ophthalmologist

Dr Roland Bunting is available on site, and is able to diagnose and treat a range of disorders including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, cataracts, and uveitis.

Eye Injections

An intravitreal injection is an injection into the vitreous cavity at the back of the eye and is a means of delivering medication to the retina of the eye. Intravitreal injections are commonly used for the treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration, some forms of diabetic retinopathy, and retinal vein occlusions.

Iridotomy Laser

A small hole (a peripheral iridotomy) is created in the iris with a laser to equalise the pressure on either side of the iris. This helps to open up the drainage angle and allows the aqueous fluid to drain more freely, preventing any sudden increase in eye pressure.

SLT Laser

This is a type of laser treatment used in the management of glaucoma (optic nerve damage from elevated eye pressure) or ocular hypertension (high eye pressure that has not yet damaged the optic). It is designed to lower the eye pressure to protect the optic nerve from progressive damage, without the need for ongoing eye drops.


A cataract is when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy. This is usually age-related and is a gradual process taking place over a number of years. A cataract reduces the amount of light entering the eye and scatters the light, so that the image formed on the retina is poorly focused and you may experience glare or your vision becoming gradually more blurred.

Surgery for cataracts becomes necessary when your vision has worsened to the point that it interferes with your daily activities such as reading or driving, if your hobbies are affected, or if your personal safety is at risk. Cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial implant to restore the vision. Various implants are available depending on your desired focus, including single focus, toric, EDOF (extended depth of focus) and multifocal.

At Dr OPTICAL we can offer direct access to cataract surgery for both privately insured and public patients.

Minor Surgery

Minor surgery is available on site to deal with various eyelid concerns, including skin tags, cysts, chalazia, narrowed tear drainage ducts (causing watery eyes), persistent ingrowing eyelashes, entropion and minor ectropion.
