• Speaker, Ophthalmology Symposium I, 21 Sep 2018


Professor Dan Milea is currently the Head of the Visual Neuroscience Group at the Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI) and a Senior Clinician in the Neuro-Ophthalmology Department of the Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC). He is Professor of Ophthalmology at the Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore; Professor of Ophthalmology at the Angers University, France and Honorary Professor at the Copenhagen University, Denmark. He completed his medical studies at the largest Neurology hospital in France, the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris. After getting his specialisation in Ophthalmology, he also completed a fellowship in Neuro-Ophthalmology at the same hospital. He has a PhD in Neuroscience, focusing on the cortical control on eye movements, which he acquired at the Collège de France and the Pierre et Marie Curie University in Paris. He became a Professor of Neuro-Ophthalmology in Denmark in 2005, where he worked as an academic neuro-ophthalmologist until 2009, when he became Professor and Chairman of the Ophthalmology Department of the Angers University Hospital, France. 

Professor Milea moved to Singapore since 2012, and created the Visual Neuroscience group at SERI, in addition to his mission as a clinical neuro-ophthalmologist. In his daily clinical practice, he deals with neuro-ophthalmic conditions affecting the afferent visual pathways (from optic nerves to the visual cortex), as well as efferent ocular motor dysfunctions caused by peripheral or central causes. Among his various research interests, he has a special interest in evaluation of pupillary pathways and he has developed patented devices allowing straightforward, objective assessment of vision in various ophthalmic and neuro-ophthalmic conditions.

Professor Milea has published over 160 peer-reviewed, PubMed indexed publications, and several textbooks and book chapters in ophthalmology and neuro-ophthalmology. He has been invited to speak at more than 200 national and international meetings in ophthalmology.
