W.I.S.E Sustainability Scholar in Ophthalmology

I'm a ST2 ophthalmology trainee in Wales deanery. I am the second Welsh scholar in sustainable ophthalmology whose scholarship is sponsored by Thea pharmaceuticals. For the scholarship this year (2020-2021), I'm looking forward to expand and build on the work completed by my predecessor, Alex Chiu. I will be using the 'Eyefficiency' app tool to collect data on the efficiency, cost and carbon footprint of cataract surgery during the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, I will be looking into carbon footprint of disposable tonometer heads used in ophthalmology clinics. I am passionate about raising awareness about sustainability in healthcare, and hope to educate the future generation of doctors in this matter.
