Biographical narrative

Teng Leng Ooi received her Bachelor of Optometry degree from the University of New South Wales in Australia, and her Ph.D. degree in Vision Science from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She has taught basic science subjects in the areas of visual perception, binocular vision and eye movements. Her laboratory, funded in part by NIH grants, conducts basic research in binocular vision, visual space perception, and visual plasticity. She also performs translational research using video game training as a form of perceptual learning to improve sensorimotor functions in eye dominance, amblyopia and strabismus.
