Dr Daniel Jackson will talk about medical imaging of the retina. Detailed imaging of the eye is crucial for the assessment of many eye conditions and retinal disorders in particular. He will be discussing what images you are likely to have during a hospital appointment; how they are taken; why we take them; how we interpret them; and how this helps in the management and treatment of retinal conditions. He will talk through pictures and examples to help illustrate exactly what we are looking at and what it means.
Daniel is a Clinical Research Fellow working at Moorfields Eye Hospital and the Institute of Ophthalmology in London. He is currently undertaking a PhD with Professor Mariya Moosajee and works in the adult and children genetics clinics at Moorfields. His background is in Clinical Ophthalmology where he has almost completed his training in the Oxford training programme. He has a special interest in genetic eye disorders, including inherited retinal conditions, paediatrics and glaucoma.
