Scott Read is an Associate Professor and Director of Research in the School of Optometry and Vision Science at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia. Since the award of his PhD in 2006, for work examining the normal corneal topography and astigmatism in the population, Scott has held a variety of research and academic positions.  Since his first publication in 2005, Scott has published over 60 peer reviewed research papers, with the majority of this research focusing upon human myopia.  A feature of Scott’s work has been his use of optical imaging techniques to broaden our understanding of human myopia, and in particular the role of the choroid.
