Dr. Eduardo M. Normando is a highly respected clinician scientist, Senior Lecturer at Imperial College London, and consultant ophthalmologist at the Western Eye and Charing Cross Hospital. He has expertise in the early diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma and is a Clinical Lead for the Ophthalmology Outpatient at Imperial. Dr. Normando is a member of several medical societies and is also involved in cutting edge research, with a focus on innovative non-invasive retinal imaging techniques and their applications in assessing novel therapeutic strategies for ophthalmic and neurodegenerative diseases. His most recent research involves using Artificial Intelligence to assess Glaucoma progression, which has the potential to detect glaucoma progression earlier than the current gold standard methods. Dr. Normando is passionate about education and has major roles in training and education at Imperial College London. He is also a member of the board of the Royal Society of Medicine Ophthalmology Section and the secretary of the glaucoma section for the European Association for Vision and Eye Research.
