Centre Director Professor Michael Kalloniatis was recently honoured with the University of Houston Distinguished Alumnus award for optometry. The award recognises Michael’s lifelong service to the profession including academic, research and other achievements.

Michael completed his PhD in Houston in 1988 and went on to complete three years post-doctoral training in neuroanatomy at the University of Texas. Since then he has had a distinguished academic career at both the University of Melbourne and University of Auckland while still maintaining his clinical practice. In 2009 he set up CFEH, becoming Centre Director and Professor of Optometry and Vision Science at UNSW.

The growth and success of CFEH can be largely attributed to Michael’s leadership and innovative thinking and the Centre would like to congratulate him on this prestigious and well-deserved acknowledgement of his achievements.
