UNSW School of Optometry and Vision Science warmly welcomes Jessie Huang to our Public Health team. Jessie joins UNSW SOVS as a Research Fellow.
Jessie’s research seeks to optimise eye care delivery, promote healthy aging and enhance the quality of life of people affected by vision impairment and ocular disease. Her PhD focused on improving glaucoma detection and management through collaborative care, patient self-monitoring of intraocular pressure and analysis of visual fields. Currently, she is involved in a project examining cataract surgery, refractive correction, falls risk and quality of life in older Australians.
Jessie has extensive optometric clinical experience, working in various contexts across Australia including private practice in rural NSW, corporate practice in Melbourne and non-government, educational institutions including the Australian College of Optometry and Centre for Eye Health). Jessie also supported the development of optometry education in Vietnam during a 12-month volunteer assignment with the Brien Holden Vision Institute and Australian Volunteers Program.
