Student Achievements

Student achievements from the Department of Optometry and Vision Sciences: 2018 Research Colloquium and recent PhD completions.

2018 Research Colloquium

Thank you to students and staff of MDHS's Melbourne School of Health Sciences for organising an outstanding 2018 Research Colloquium which took place on Thursday November 1st, 2018.

Our masters and PhD student did an excellent job presenting their research studies. Particular highlights were Pei Ying Lee (why older ganglion cells are more sensitive to high pressure), Summer Singh (how well do optometrist understand blue light damage) and Juan Sepulveda (why motion perception declines in ageing) who won awards for their oral presentations. Well done to all!

PhD students: Pei Ying Lee, Summer Singh and Juan Sepulveda.
