Vinod Maseedupally

Lecturer

Dr Vinod Maseedupally received his PhD in Optometry and Vision Science from the University of New South Wales in 2013.

Vinod is an overseas qualified optometrist. He completed his undergraduate degree in India. He previously worked in India at a premier eye institute as an optometrist, researcher and teacher. 

Education

2013 - PhD, University of New South Wales (UNSW)

2005 - BS (Optometry), Bausch & Lomb School of Optometry, (Birla Institute of Technology & Science – Pilani), India

1999 - DipOT, LV Prasad Eye Institute (LVPEI), Federation of Ophthalmic and Eye Research Centre, India

 

Research Goals

Vinod's research interests include assessment of corneal shape, contact lenses, orthokeratology and visual optics. In particular, his research focusses on understanding corneal shape in centre and towards periphery. Other interests include understanding induced corneal shape changes (like in orthokeratology) and its effects on myopia control and astigmatism.
