Dr

Bao Nguyen

 

Dr Bao Nguyen is a clinician (optometrist) and researcher in human visual neuroscience. She is primarily focused on using vision to understand changes in the healthy brain across a lifetime, from childhood development through to older adulthood.

Bao is also interested in measuring visual function (using non-invasive electrophysiological and neuroimaging methods) and visual perception (using psychophysical methods) in ocular disease (e.g. glaucoma, high myopia), neurological conditions (e.g. migraine), and systemic conditions that can have ocular manifestations (e.g. human immunodeficiency virus infection) to better understand the underlying pathophysiology and visual experience of these patients. Bao is a lecturer in the Doctor of Optometry program and supervises graduate researchers in the Department of Optometry and Vision Sciences at The University of Melbourne.
