Dr Julie McClelland PhD, MCOptom, DipTp(IP), FHEA

Lecturer in Optometry

Julie McClelland qualified with a 1st class honours in BSc Optometry in 1999 and completed her pre-registration year in an independent Optometry practice in Kent.  Julie became a member of The College of Optometrists in 2000.  She completed her PhD under the supervision of Professor Saunders and was appointed as a lecturer in Vision Science in 2004.  She has a special interest in ocular therapeutics and is qualified as an optometrist independent prescriber.

Research

Her research interests include investigating visual function in children both with and without complex neurological needs. Previous research has examined visual function in children with cerebral palsy, refractive development in albinism and treatment of binocular vision disorders in children with reading difficulties.

Julie is currently Vice Chair of The School of Biomedical Sciences Ethics Filter Committee and Treasurer of the Vision Translational Research Group Northern Ireland.

Teaching

She is actively involved in teaching for undergraduate Optometry and is Module co-ordinator for: OPT508 Ocular Disease and Therapeutics; OPT510 Ocular Disease; and OPT309 Human Disease with clinical supervision in OPT505 (Patient Management), OPT305 (Advanced Examination Techniques). She also undertakes supervision of final year research projects (OPT504 Optometry Research Project) and research projects module in MSc Clinical Vision Sciences (OPT806). Julie is also admissions Tutor for BSc (Hons) Optometry.
