Congratulations to Patrick Richardson who has been named Association of Optometrists Lecturer of the Year at the AOP awards.

Patrick Richardson is a lecturer and Optometry Clinic Manager at Ulster University. Patrick uses an evidence based approach to bring optometry to life and prepare students for practice.

Having worked part-time in three academic departments and a large teaching hospital, Patrick Richardson says his clinical experiences play a central part in his teaching, explaining; “I believe my main role is to take my experience to the students and make them understand the direct links between a theoretical knowledge of optics and clinical work.”
