About me

David Lockington has been a Consultant Ophthalmologist at Tennent Institute of Ophthalmology, Glasgow, since January 2014, with sub-specialist training in Cornea, Cataract and Anterior Segment. Following 2 years of SHO training in the Northern Ireland ophthalmic rotation, he moved to Glasgow in 2007 for his Registrar ophthalmology training throughout the West of Scotland. From 2012-13 he undertook an advanced Cornea and Anterior Segment fellowship with Professor Charles McGhee at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, where he remains an honorary clinical senior lecturer.
He has an active interest in research and teaching, having now achieved over 80 peer-reviewed publications despite having always been in full-time clinical training, and has received 7 awards for his research and multiple oral presentations. He recently graduated from the 2017-19 European Society of Ophthalmology’s Leadership Development programme as the UK representative, and used these skills to coordinate a renovation project to create a bespoke “Teach and Train Hub” for ophthalmic trainees at the Tennent Institute.
David is actively involved in cataract and corneal teaching as an invited speaker and trainer at national and international meetings. He recently completed a PhD entitled "First do no harm! Safer management of ophthalmic anterior segment conditions".
