At Paul Adler Optometrist, we sometimes have undergraduate optometry students and qualified colleagues observing us in our clinics and have been actively engaged in research.


Our staff have taught at the University of Hertfordshire, Cardiff University, Aston University, Institute of Optometry, Anglia Ruskin University, City University, British Association of Behavioural Optometrists and Heidelberg Academy.




Brief details of papers published appear below.


At the moment we are working on a project to assess the focussing power and eye teaming of children.  The work is being done in collaboration with Bradford University. We expect the results to be available soon.
