Prof Gerard Sutton is one of Australia’s leading ophthalmic surgeons and is internationally recognised as an expert in cataract surgery, laser vision correction and corneal transplantation. He is a highly experienced eye surgeon, having performed over 20,000 surgical procedures, and is the Sydney Medical School Foundation Professor of Corneal and Refractive Surgery. Prof Sutton has significant expertise in vision correction (e.g. LASIK, ASLA/PRK, SMILE®, refractive lens exchange and implantable lenses) and can offer patients the latest intraocular lens products (including trifocal lenses). As an expert in corneal conditions, Prof Sutton also performs procedures such as corneal cross-linking, corneal ring implants and corneal transplantation (DMEK, DALK, DSAEK). He is the medical director of the Lions NSW Eye Bank and is actively involved in research.
After being the first surgeon to represent Australia in the Cataract Surgery Olympics in 2016, Professor Sutton returned as a member of Team Asia Pacific for the 2018 competition held at the World Ophthalmology Congress in Barcelona earlier this year.
Teams of leading cataract surgeons from around the globe participate by showing videos that demonstrate their surgical technique, particularly for difficult or complicated cases of cataracts. Competing against surgeons from Latin America, North America and Europe/Middle East, Professor Sutton’s team impressed the panel of judges and audience voters, and proudly took home the gold medal.
Professor Sutton is pictured here with the other members of Team Asia Pacific: Professors Soon-Phaik Chee, Ramamurthy Dandapani and Tetsuro Oshika.
Prof Sutton is an active researcher, with over 100 peer-reviewed publications. He has a strong research interest in corneal bioengineering, and is currently involved in the development of the Corneal Biopen to treat corneal conditions. Prof Sutton also undertakes research into clinical advances in cataract and laser eye surgery.
Professor Sutton was an invited lecturer at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) 2019 meeting in Vancouver, Canada. He discussed the advent of a bioengineered cornea. ARVO is regarded as the premier ophthalmology research meeting and the invitation was a reflection of Prof Sutton’s international reputation in ophthalmic surgery.
Prof Sutton is the medical director of the Lions NSW Eye Bank, a not-for-profit organisation that recovers, prepares, stores and distributes corneas and sclera in NSW and the ACT. It also supports research into eye disease, and is committed to educating healthcare professionals and the community about tissue donation. The Eye Bank works with the Mandalay Eye Hospital in Myanmar, where corneal disease is a leading cause of blindness.
