    Ann presents at American Academy of Optometry

    Ann presented a poster covering research that she and her colleagues have been working on recently at the American Academy of Optometry meeting in Anaheim, USA, in November.

    The topic of the poster was " Amblyopia Affects Visual Attention, Visual Search and Scanning in Children".

    It was a project of the School of Optometry and Vision Science and the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation at QUT. 

                                             

    The poster was very well received and Ann was able to also catch up with her Alumni friends from the University of Houston College of Optometry!

    Well done Ann!
