My research is in the area of Vision Science, with an educational background and training in Psychology (Neuroscience). One of my research objectives is comparison of the efficacy of different methods of measurement of refractive error in young children in order to optimize vision screening objectives. I also examine the prevalence of refractive errors, such as hyperopia and astigmatism, in our study population, to get an understanding of the development of refractive errors in children and doing population comparisons. Lastly, through CLLRnet along with Dr. Bill Bobier and in collaboration with Dr. Evans, I am involved in investigating the link between vision anomalies, especially hyperopia, and emergent literacy issues in young children.
