Vision Loss Doctor Was Appointed With A ProfessorshipIn 2016, Dr. Rachel Pilling – a pediatric ophthalmologist – won Vision UK's Astbury Award for her work within the Bradford Learning Disability Eye Service. Now, the vision loss doctor was appointed with a professorship at the University of Bradford School of Optometry and Vision Science. She is the first professor in special needs and learning disability eye care in the United Kingdom.
"This is an incredible opportunity to build on the last 10 years of my work and career at Bradford University to date, to make a positive impact and really make a difference to the eye care of people with learning disabilities," said Pilling.
