Dr Daemon McClunan

  • Specialist Ophthalmologist

Dr Daemon McClunan’s achievements seek to challenge the frontiers of ophthalmic research and development. Dr McClunan is accoladed amongst his peers for being the youngest member to serve on the South African Glaucoma Society committee, the founder of LIQID MEDICAL Pty - a multi award winning ophthalmic biotechnology company, and the creator of four patented devices.

Dr McClunan received the Geoff Howes and Ophthalmic society medals while in specialist training at Groote Schuur Hospital. Medals of the highest prestige; awarded to the candidate with the highest examination results. He further holds distinctions with his medical degree (MBChB) obtained from Stellenbosch University in 2009, and his Masters in Medicine (MMed) for his surgical technique.

On a humanitarian note, Dr McClunan joined a non-profit cause during his community year to tackle the harsh Southern African terrain by motorbike, travelling over 15,000km with his expedition team to carry out rural eye screenings amongst the poorer communities. These days, owing to a demanding work schedule, his philanthropic efforts extend mainly to free eye screenings for family members. In his leisure time, Dr McClunan enjoys hiking, diving, and kitesurfing and prioritises spending quality time with his wife and new born son.

Dr McClunan’s dedication to his field of expertise is further cemented by international observership experience in Glaucoma and Advanced Cataract surgery from the Prism Eye Institute in Toronto as well as in Glaucoma surgery from the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital in Melbourne.

While Dr McClunan treats many eye conditions, he specialises in advanced cataract surgery with expert skills in minimally invasive glaucoma surgery.
