Lyle Gray graduated from the forerunner institution of Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) in 1989, and after qualifying as an optometrist in 1990, undertook a PhD, which he started at Aston University and subsequently completed at GCU in 1994. He undertook a 1 year Post-doctoral Research Fellow position studying the uses of autorefractors in clinical practice, and then became a Lecturer at GCU. He has subsequently been promoted to Senior Lecturer, and is also the Research Director/Postgraduate Tutor and the Chair of the Vision Sciences Research Committee.
His research interests centre upon refractive error development and its causes, and upon the aetiology, assessment and management of amblyopia in children. Recent projects have been designing a systematic test protocol for amblyopia (funded by a £40K grant from the College of Optometrists) and the structure and visual function in the hyperopic eye (funded by a £50K grant from the College of Optometrists).
