David is one of the few optometrists in Australia to fit contact lenses for babies following surgery for congenital cataract and eye trauma, and is also one of Queensland's most experienced optometrists in the management of contact lenses for keratoconus and corneal transplants, having treated over 1000 patients with these conditions.

David worked for many years at John Mountford optometrists before moving to his own practice with the goal of providing the highest level of contact lens care in Australia. David currently practices at Advanced Optometry, formerly known as EyeQ Optometrists Wickham Terrace - a practice known for its longstanding reputation for advanced contact lens care, having provided thousands of custom contact lenses for patients as well as for the movie industry.
