Biography

Background

Dr Scott Read is a Reasearch Fellow in the School of Optometry and Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) at QUT. Dr Read graduated from QUT with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Optometry with First Class Honours in 1997, and was awarded the QUT University Medal. He then worked in private optometry practice for six years.

Dr Read returned to QUT in 2003 and began his PhD studies, funded through the Australian Postgraduate Research Award. He completed his PhD in 2006 under the supervision of Professor Michael Collins. His PhD thesis, “Corneal topography and the morphology of the palpebral fissure”, investigated, in detail, the normal shape of the cornea and morphology of the eyelids in the population, and examined the role of the eyelids in determining normal corneal shape. His thesis was awarded a QUT Faculty of Health Executive Dean’s commendation for higher degree research. He has presented his work at national and international conferences.  

In 2012 Dr Read was awarded an Australian Research Council “Discovery Early Career Research Award”  to investigate the Role of  outdoor activities in myopia development. His current research interests include the investigation of diurnal variations in eye biometrics, ocular imaging and refractive error development.
