Avesh Raghunandan, B.Optom, CAS, MS, OD, PhD., is a Professor who received an Optometry degree from the University of Durban-Westville (South Africa) in 1995, completed certification in advanced diagnosis and treatment of ocular diseases from the New England College of Optometry in 1998, obtained a Masters degree in Physiological Optics in 2000, and later obtained a joint OD/ PhD degree from the University of Houston - College of Optometry. Awarded the Fulbright Scholarship in 1998 and Erhardt Fellowship in 2000. Lectured in areas of Physiological Optics, Vision Science, ocular disease diagnostic procedures and actively engaged in research in both basic visual science and epidemiology. Research interests include binocular vision, eye movements, motion processing, and spatial vision in normal and abnormal visual systems.
