Expert witness

I have been involved in over 60 cases as expert witness, including complaints brought before the General Optical Council Fitness to Practice Committee, NHS tribunals, civil litigation (clinical negligence), and the first criminal case (alleged manslaughter through clinical negligence) involving an optometrist. I have taken instructions from solicitors (for both prosecution and defence), General Optical Council, Association of Optometrists, and from local NHS organisations.These cases have included claims concerning orthoptics (binocular vision, strabismus, and amblyopia), paediatric eye problems, specific learning difficulties (dyslexia, including the use of coloured filters), retinal detachment, tumours, contact lenses, domiciliary eyecare, and the provision of NHS services. I was Director of Studies in a three year programme of research which determined the content of typical eye examinations by community optometrists, which provides a unique insight into the performance that can be expected of reasonably competent optometrists. I have recently supervised a literature review investigating whether modern imaging techniques (e.g., fundus photography) can replace ophthalmoscopy in community optometric practice.

 

Other activities

In 1993 I gave advice to the College of Optometrists on the therapeutic use of coloured filters which was later incorporated into guidance that the College issued to the profession. Other activities with the College of Optometrists include: contributing to continuing education syllabi in dyslexia and binocular vision, co-author of the syllabus and Chair of the Subject Expert Panel for the higher Diploma in Orthoptics, member of the Higher Qualifications Exam Board, and the Working Group on Schoolchildren. For over 10 years I was an examiner for the College of Optometrists Diploma in Orthoptics and latterly was chair of the subject expert panel for this diploma.

 

I am author of seven editions of books, five on binocular vision anomalies and two on vision and dyslexia. From 2002 to 2013 I was a member of the Editorial Board of the peer-reviewed journal, Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics. I have been involved in several multi-media training products, typically as expert consultant and/or as presenter. I have reviewed many journal articles and several grant applications, including for UK research councils.

 

Although I am involved in several research studies and have authored over 200 papers, most of my working week is spent providing routine optometric eyecare in a community optometric practice. My clinical specialities include dyslexia and vision, children’s visual problems, orthoptics, and contact lenses. I have delivered over 250 invited lectures, most on continuing professional development courses for optometrists.

 

In 2004 I undertook a Clinical Trials and Good Clinical Practice in Primary Care Training Day run by EPCRN. I have been external examiner to seven PhD candidates (Simon Barnard, City University, 1999; Catherine Porter, Manchester University, 2005; Ben Wright, Essex University, 2008; Penny D’Ath, City University, 2008; Dharani Ramamurthy, Anglia Ruskin University, 2010; Marc Lambooij, Eindhoven University; Shelley Hopkins, QUT, 2013) and two professional doctorates (Ian Beasley, Aston University, 2012; Josie Forte). I have supervised:

 

Since November 2008 I have been a governor of Brentwood School. This is an independent school with over 1,500 pupils and which employs approximately 200 teachers. I am the governor with special responsibility for the oversight of safeguarding.

 

RESEARCH STUDIES

Only major (MSc or above) research studies are listed. In addition, I supervise several City University BSc special studies, including this year one project and three dissertations.
