Biographical details

I am a clinician scientist with sub-specialty expertise in disorders of the optic nerve. I hold dual fellowships in glaucoma and neuro-ophthalmology from Moorfields Eye Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square in London.

I consult at Sydney Eye Hospital, RPA and Liverpool hospitals and my current research projects include the role of neuro-imaging in glaucoma, and the role of OCT in differentiating glaucomatous optic neuropathy from other diseases of the optic nerve.

Selected grants

  • Limitations of corneal donation services: Why people choose not to donate eyes; Lawlor M, Billson F, Kerridge I, Sokolov E; Ophthalmic Research Institute of Australia (ORIA)/Research Grants in Ophthalmology.
