NIHR ACF in Ophthalmology 2016-2019 Dr Sohaib Rufai wins British Isles Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Association (BIPOSA) prize of £500

In October 2017 Dr Sohaib Rufai beat 200 abstract entries to win the prestigious £500 BIPOSA prize for his ACF research work in the world’s first study of its type to assess how infant eye defects can affect future vision. 

Dr Rufai said:

It was most humbling to receive this prize for presenting our exciting OCT study at BIPOSA. I owe thanks to my fantastic supervisors Professor Irene Gottlob and Dr Frank Proudlock, my brilliant colleagues Dr Mervyn Thomas, Dr Helena Lee and Mr Ravi Purohit, and of course to our wonderful research patients. This is a new and exciting area for research and we hope our work paves the way in improving management for patients with infantile nystagmus.
