Mr Tristan McMullan has been a Consultant since 2007. A Cambridge graduate with a PhD, he trained in both the UK and the USA.

This institute was home to two of the leading Ophthalmologic Plastic Surgeons in all America.
Mr McMullan enjoys cataract surgery as part of his wide practice in general ophthalmology. He specialises in a procedure using a small incision in the cataract using topical (eye-drop) anaesthetic. Outside of providing a gold-standard General Ophthalmic practice, Mr McMullan subspecialises in eyelid and lacrimal surgery - droopy, in-turned, out-turned eyelids, tumours, Dry Eye etc.
In all his surgery, he utilises and develops his broad variety of techniques from both sides of the Atlantic to optimise the results for both the patient and surgeon.

He is currently a member of the British Oculoplastic Surgery Society and its European counterpart. He is a NAB Trustee and Associate Director for Undergraduate Studies at NGH.
