Glyn Walsh is Programme Leader for the GCU Ophthalmic Dispensing programme, and teaches on all of the eye-care suite of programmes. This teaching is largely on optical appliances, but he is also involved in may other clinical areas to a lesser degree. His first degree in Ophthalmic Optics was completed at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (U.M.I.S.T.). His MSc and PhD were awarded by the U.M.I.S.T. The MSc involved the development of the first objective aberrometer, and the measurement of the eye’s optics that this allowed has since become a widely accepted clinical procedure. The PhD looked into the effect of eye’s aberrations on its focusing process and again involved conception, design and construction of novel optical apparatus. He continues to have a strong interest in the development of optical devices, both new forms of examination apparatus and in the production of individual devices to assist GCU Eye Clinic patients, including many referred there specifically for this reason, in daily function. Glyn is a practising registered Optometrist, an examiner for the College of Optometrists and a reviewer for most of the leading Optometry journals.
