Dr Andreas Mueller is Deputy Director of the World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for the Prevention of Blindness at CERA, and a Consultant to the World Health Organization.

He has worked across various sectors of the public health field, supporting eye research and prevention of blindness initiatives in academia, the non-government sector and within the UN system.

Dr Mueller’s research interests include innovative strategies to improve the quality and effectiveness of eye care services in low- and middle-income countries, including the use of technology for population screening for eye disease in general, and diabetic retinopathy in particular.

Key research questions
  • How can we improve access to eye care in rural and remote settings around the world?
  • What are effective ways to change our behaviour to reduce the increasing burden of myopia?
  • How can technology be used effectively to detect referrable eye conditions of no eye specialist is available?

Health promotion to reduce the burden of myopia

Together with the World Health Organization, we are developing a new programme at CERA to develop myopia prevention strategies and health promotion materials to be used in Australia and other countries where myopia is a public health problem.

Easy Vision Test

With support from Google, CERA developed a smartphone-based vision test (Easy Vision Test), currently available in Google Play Store. We are modifying the test, together with the World Health Organization, to be used for eye screening across the world.
