Dr Jed Lusthaus
MBBS (Adel), MPH (Syd), FRANZCO
After completing my medical degree in 2006 at the University of Adelaide, I undertook internship and residency at Concord Hospital, Sydney. I was trained as an ophthalmologist at Sydney Eye Hospital. During my training I was very fortunate to spend time working in Darwin and various outreach clinics in the Northern Territory treating indigenous Australians. This is something I plan to continue in the future.
From early in my training I developed an interest in cataract surgery and glaucoma. I completed a glaucoma fellowship under the guidance of Prof Keith Martin at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, UK. I gained valuable experience in glaucoma surgery and cataract surgery. I am a staff specialist at Sydney Eye Hospital where I manage general eye diseases as well as being a member of the Glaucoma Unit.
Through Sydney University I am completing a PhD using a new imaging technique developed in Cambridge. The aim of the research is to improve our understanding of why people develop glaucoma. I find teaching and lecturing very rewarding, and through Sydney University I give lectures to medical students. At Sydney Eye Hospital I provide training to ophthalmology registrars and international fellows. I was a committee member of Glaucoma Australia, helping improve glaucoma awareness. Also, I am a faculty member of Lifeline Express, and provide a service to rural areas of China teaching ophthalmologists.
My other passions include sport, film, classical music, and spending time with my family and friends.
