Dr. Moore has been a pediatric optometric clinician with a focus on the care of young children throughout his 40 year career spanning tertiary hospital care settings to a wide variety of community based settings. Dr. Moore developed and has led the NECO Mobile Eye Clinic service and provides care on it weekly. He has had a leadership role in local and national Head Start programs, and developed the vision screening programs of the College within Head Start’s across Massachusetts.
Dr. Moore is a visiting scientist at the Center for Vision In the Developing World at Oxford University, supported by funding from the World Bank and Dow Corning Inc., which is developing variable focus spectacles that can be employed as a self-refracting tool for children and adults with uncorrected refractive error in areas in the developing world without adequate access to vision care and spectacles. This project has led to clinical trials in Boston and in urban and rural China that has confirmed the efficacy of self refraction in myopic teenagers. This work is ongoing and funded by multiple sources, including the Chinese government.
