Biographical Sketch

Dr Jeffrey Leung is currently a Research Assistant Professor at the School of Optometry, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) teaching Clinical Binocular Vision, and Ophthalmic Optics and Dispensing. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Optometry and PhD degree from PolyU in 2008 and 2014 respectively. After obtaining his PhD degree, he joined the School as an Optometrist in the Optometry Clinic to conduct clinical research and provide clinical service to the public. He was also a team member of two specialty groups focusing on high myopia and pediatric eye care. In addition to teaching and clinical service, he has been serving as a technical expert for Hong Kong Accreditation Service of Innovation and Technology Commission to provide consultancy advice for ophthalmic laboratory testing.

Dr Leung’s research interests lie in the field of vision enhancement and refractive-error control. In 2018, he was awarded the Health and Medical Research Fund Research Fellowship by the Food and Health Bureau of HKSAR, and received scientific training at the University of California, Berkeley. The project aims to establish a vision training protocol for adults with astigmatism-related amblyopia using the perceptual learning approach. This active training method successfully improved amblyopic vision by an average of 20%, and the results have been presented at international conferences. He is currently also working on clinical and animal studies focusing on the effect of on- and off-axis aberrations on eye growth.
