Personal profile


Professor Bill Morgan is the Managing Director of the Lions Eye Institute and also Professor of Ophthalmology at The University of Western Australia and Consultant Ophthalmologist at Royal Perth Hospital.

His clinical interests include glaucoma and other pressure disorders of the optic nerve.  His research interests centre on the cerebrospinal fluid and intraocular pressure effects upon optic nerve and retinal vasculature.  This has evolved into investigating pulse wave transmission along the retinal vasculature including the central influence of cerebrospinal fluid pressure and the orbital pressure.

He is currently working on systems to non-invasively measure cerebrospinal fluid pressure and how this may be applied in space – microgravity situations as well as in patients.  His research is driven by the need to understand neurovascular alterations induced in pressure boundary situations.

He is an inventor on several patents including glaucoma surgical devices, one commercialised is the XEN gelatine stent used internationally, and another is the Virna glaucoma drainage device used throughout Indonesia.

He teaches extensively in Indonesia and Australia and is always looking for keen students.

He has been invited to speak at both German and Swiss Ophthalmological conferences as well as the Association for Research and Vision in Ophthalmology Conference on several occasions.
