Task performance in ocular conditions

Many ocular conditions affect vision and visual performance, but less consideration is given to task performance and the impact of these conditions on tasks and activities of daily living. This project would investigate the effect of different ocular conditions, and their different treatment options, on a range of different tasks that affect daily living. The quantitative study would suit a candidate with a clinical background in orthoptics, optometry or ophthalmology. 

Keywords: strabismus, nystagmus, task performance, orthoptics, optometry, ophthalmology 

Entry Requirements

Candidates must have a first or upper second class honors degree or significant research experience.

Clinical experience as an Orthoptist, Optometrist or Ophthalmologist is recommended. Other relevant clinical experience would be considered.
