Dr John Robert Phillips

BSc(M Eng), BSc(Optom), MSc, PhD, MCOptom, FAAO

Research | Current

Dr Phillips is Principal Investigator of the Auckland Myopia Laboratory. Research in this group includes clinical research into childhood myopia development and progression and also research into the physiological processes which control eye size and which normally ensure that as the eye grows it remains emmetropic (i.e. without a refractive error).
