Maroochy Eye Specialists Dr Posselt


Dr David Posselt is a Queensland trained ophthalmologist, who has been providing comprehensive Ophthalmic Care on the Sunshine Coast since 2011. In that time, he has developed a reputation for excellent communication with patients and referrers, a thorough approach to eye care, and safe surgical and medical treatments based on the most up to date techniques.

Dr Posselt completed his medical and Ophthalmology training in Brisbane, with additional training undertaken in Exeter, Cheltenham and Gloucester in the UK.

Dr Posselt strives to offer a consultation style based on listening to his patients to best understand their needs and concerns, and providing the best possible explanations in return, so that they can fully understand their eye health and the treatments being offered.

Expert Eyecare

Dr Posselt offers eye consultations in all areas of ophthalmology (excluding refractive surgery), with particular interests in:

  • Cataract surgery, utilising modern small incision techniques and lens implants

  • Pterygium surgery, utilising a large conjunctival graft technique for superior cosmesis and a very low recurrence rate, which has traditionally been the major issue with pterygium surgery.

  • Assessment and treatment of other ocular surface lesions

  • Oculoplastic surgery – eyelid lesions and malposition

  • Assessment and management of medical retinal conditions, including injection therapy for macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and vascular occlusions

  • Medical and laser treatment of glaucoma
