Eye and Vision Sciences research group

Eye and vision sciences

Vision is rated as the most important of the five senses; it is responsible for more than 80% of input to the brain. The Eye and Vision research group is an inter-professional group of scientists and clinicians who focus on structure and function of the eye, visual perception, and clinical measurement of vision and visual dysfunction.

Eye and vision masterclass series

  • Series 1: Glaucoma and optic neuropathies
  • Series 2: Vision rehabilitation
  • Series 3: Binocular vision and paediatrics
  • Series 4: Vision and ophthalmic optics
  • Series 5: Anterior segment and dry eye.

The eye and vision masterclass series at the University provides cutting-edge continuing education for eye professionals of all disciplines (optometrists, ophthalmologists, orthoptists, dispensing opticians, ophthalmic nurses, ophthalmic photographers and technologists) and is supported by leading industry partners. Specialists deliver clinically relevant seminars, real-time demonstrations with volunteer patients and state-of-the-art kit, as well as exercises and assessments on computer workstations.

The masterclasses are for ambitious graduate professionals who have a deep interest in clinical eye care and who are able to support their learning through high-level reading (five to ten hours per class), some of it self-directed. 

Course material, along with a 30-minute self-assessment, will be available three weeks prior to each class. 

The masterclasses will be highly clinical and will expose the latest evidence-base for clinical care and decision-making. Our faculty includes world-leading specialists who will bring to life current controversies through panel discussions and debates. 

A cross-cutting theme of all masterclass series will be public eye health and epidemiology. CET points will be applied for (TBC).
