Dr Anne Weymouth
BOptom, CertOcTher, PhD
Following graduation, Anne undertook doctoral and post-doctoral research in electrophysiology and psychophysics. During this time, she gained overseas training in paediatric electrophysiology at the Children’s Hospital, Harvard, Boston and in Lyon, France. Anne currently works as a consultant electrophysiologist in a private ophthalmology clinic as well as in independent optometry practice. Her patient base includes those with dystrophies, toxicities and neurodegenerations, those with autoimmune or paraneoplastic retinopathies as well as babies and young children. She also consults in occupational assessments of visual function.
Recent research interests involve investigating hyperspectral imaging in retinal disease as well as clinical trials assessing the potential for retinal toxicity in novel therapeutic agents, currently a therapy for multiple sclerosis.
Anne is a Director on the board of Optometry Victoria/South Australia, a member of the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision, a Credentialed Optometrist for CASA and a Fellow of the Department of Optometry and Vision Sciences at the University of Melbourne, the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital and the Australian College of Optometry, and supervises postgraduate research in the University of Melbourne’s Department of Ophthalmology.
