Michael Crossland

Senior research fellow, UCL

I am a senior research fellow in ophthalmology at UCL and a senior optometrist in the low vision clinic at Moorfields Eye Hospital. I have published more than 40 peer-reviewed journal papers, several book chapters, and am the co-author of the forthcoming textbook 'Low Vision: Principles and Management'. I am a member of the Macular Society research committee and have served on the board of the International Society for Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation. My major research interest is in using assistive technology and new devices to improve quality of life in people with vision impairment.
