  Using Classification Images to Unlock Expertise in Judgements of 3D Aerial Geography.
  Dr A J Schofield, Dr T Meese
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from ambitious, self-motivated candidates with an interest in studying human visual perception in relation to the identification of geographic features in 3D Aerial images.
  The eyes have it: fetal reactions to visual stimulation
  Dr N Reissland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The womb is not entirely dark and hence fetuses can perceive light. It is not clear what fetuses might be able to perceive and in what detail they might be able to “see” which has implications for cognitive development.
  Assessment of Spectacle Independence with Multifocal IOLs utilising Patient Reported Outcomes
  Dr C Hamer, Dr K Bannigan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20024 Hamer. In cataract surgery, the assessments, procedure and implants (intraocular lenses, IOLs) have all improved to such an extent, that it is now possible to correct pre-existing refractive error (need for spectacles) [1-4].
  Compromised Optic Nerve Head Perfusion and Cerebral Oxygenation in Glaucoma
  Dr L Cameron, Dr U Shahani, Dr A Logan
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

REF SHLS-20008 Cameron. Glaucoma is a progressive optic neuropathy and one of the most common causes of visual impairment in ageing adults, where poor vascular perfusion in the eye is thought to be a causative factor .1,2,3.
  Exploring eye care pathways, patient priorities and economics in low and middle-income countries
  Dr S Jonuscheit, Dr N McHugh, Prof N Strang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20031. Background. Worldwide, about 400 million people are visually impaired or blind, constituting considerable demand for eye care.1 Effective and accessible eye care can make a significant difference to the lives of millions of people as 80% of all causes of visual impairment are preventable or curable.
  Measuring the Impact of Visual Impairment on Face Perception: A Combined Behavioural and Haemodynamic Approach
  Dr A Logan, Dr U Shahani, Dr L Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20025. Faces contain a wealth of information. a brief glimpse is typically sufficient to recognise a familiar face or interpret a facial expression.
  Measuring Visual Sensitivity to Emotional Facial Expressions in Health and Disease
  Dr A Logan, Dr U Shahani, Prof G Loffler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19031. Humans tend to leak emotion through facial expressions. A brief glimpse of a face is often sufficient to determine that an individual is feeling happy, sad, angry or surprised.
  Vertical reading training for stroke survivors with visual field loss
  Dr K Thomson, Dr C Hazelton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20028 Thomson. Background. Stroke survivors with visual field loss struggle to read, due to an inability to see the start or end of lines of text within the area of lost vision.
  Spatial statistical methods and machine learning for analysis of retinal images of optic disc
  Dr G Czanner, Dr S Czanner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Automated disease diagnosis using medical imaging data is an increasingly important problem. For example, colour retinal images are used to detect glaucoma - a major cause of blindness.
  Novel approaches for the treatment of dry eye disease
  Dr J Gabhann, Prof C Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation is a key unifying factor for a range of ocular surface inflammatory diseases including autoimmune mediated dry eye disease (DED) and complications with corneal transplantation (CT).
