About the Project

Strabismus surgery outcomes

How do we best predict the effect of strabismus surgery? What are the long-term outcomes of undergoing strabismus surgery? This project would investigate the outcomes of strabismus surgery in comparison to the outcomes predicted preoperatively. In addition, the longer-term outcomes of strabismus surgery would be investigated, including the visual, functional and quality of life benefits. This research study is planned as a mixed methods study and it would suit a candidate with a clinical background in orthoptics, optometry or ophthalmology. 

Keywords: strabismus, surgery, 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.
