Queensland Vision Research Summit 2017

 

About 40 research optometrists, private practice optometrists, ophthalmologists, ophthalmology registrars, orthoptists, biomedical scientists and students attended the first Queensland Collaborative Vision Research Symposium at QUT.

They discussed potential topics for collaborative research including myopia, amblyopia and microbiota and the eye, and potential research questions that could be answered by cross-professional clinical trials.

Dr Ann Webber was the main organiser of the event on 27 June, in partnership with Queensland University of Technology School of Optometry and Vision Science, and Queensland Eye Institute (QEI).

Dr Webber said the goal of the first program was to foster networking among QUT vision scientists, biomedical scientists, optometrists, and ophthalmologists interested in clinical research.
