I lead the Leicester Ophthalmology group and my main areas of research are the regulation of eye movements and their disorders, in particular nystagmus. Current areas of active research include understanding the genetics of neuro-ophthalmic diseases, improving diagnosis and treatment of nystagmus, amblyopia and other neuro-ophthalmic diseases.

Research Interest

Nystagmus Infantile nystagmus (IN) is a to and fro oscillation of the eyes which is estimated to have a prevalence of 2.4 per 1000. It has a direct impact upon visual function through constant motion of images on the retina as well as often being associated with retinal deficits.
