With expertise in retinal anatomy and neurochemistry, Professor Kalloniatis is a highly experienced optometrist with a range of academic and research experience who has maintained clinical practice throughout his career. Both Michael’s parents have experienced vision loss at the hands of eye disease, so his passion to prevent blindness through early diagnosis is augmented by personal first-hand understanding of the social impacts of vision loss. Michael oversees all research at CFEH, most of which relates to the early detection and management of posterior eye disease and the development of new clinical pathways.
