The Power List 2017

Dan Lindfield

Consultant Ophthalmologist and Glaucoma Lead, Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford, UK

Already a prominent glaucoma surgeon, Lindfield’s main interests are complex cataract surgery, all aspects of glaucoma surgery and educational research. He is a glaucoma surgical trainer, hosting registrars and consultants from England in addition to training device manufacturer employees and surgical trainers from across Europe. He has received several well-recognized national and international awards, including ESCRS Young Ophthalmologist Award, SOS First Prize, UKISCRS Best Video Award, ARVO Young Investigator Award, and has published more than 25 peer-reviewed articles in highly-regarded journals.

One of Lindfield’s current research interests is the use of eye movement tracking to detect visual field changes in patients whilst they watch TV on a tablet computer. The work in collaboration with David Crabb at City University, London, plans to develop cheap, readily accessible and novel technology to aid early detection of eye disease at home.

According to one nominator, “Dan is a caring, personable ophthalmologist with a very approachable style to patient care; a strong believer in patient education and involvement. Since coming to Guildford, he has built a formidable local glaucoma service with excellent treatment and training opportunities.”
