Rakhee Shah, Council member
I am an optometrist and split my time between academia (City, University of London), research and working in independent practice. In practice, I enjoy myopia and dry eye management. My research interests include evidence-based optometry, clinical optometry, clinical decision making, professional practice, glaucoma and dementia. Advances in technology and forecasted changes in education will have an impact on the scope of optometric practice. Raising awareness of the role of optometrists, with appropriate funding for clinical services, is the ongoing challenge.
