He is strongly involved in Quality of Life research in Glaucoma, the subject of his Masters of Philosophy (University of Sydney). He is furthering his studies in this field as part of a PhD in collaboration with world-leaders in Ophthalmology research from the University of Cambridge, University of Melbourne and University of Sydney. Simon also has research interests in Dry Eye Disease.

At Addenbrooke’s Hospital (Cambridge University) Simon established site participation in two multinational clinical trials evaluating novel therapies for Glaucoma.

Simon is an Expert Advisory Panel member for Glaucoma Australia. He is a course co-ordinator for the Ocular Physiology component of the University of Sydney Masters of Medicine (Ophthalmic Science) course. He is actively involved in the training of medical students, registrars and fellows in Glaucoma and Cataract surgery, and has organized teaching events and conferences for registrars across Australia and New Zealand. He is a reviewer for the Asia-Pacific Journal of Ophthalmology, Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, the US Ophthalmic Review and BMJ Ophthalmology.
