Biography

Dr. Allen Cheong received her Bachelor's degree in Optometry from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. She continued her graduate training in the area of low vision at the School of Optometry in Queensland University of Technology. Upon receiving her PhD, she conducted her postdoctoral work at the Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins University and Department of Psychology at the University of Minnesota in assessing low vision patients’ functional performances (reading and mobility). In 2008, she joined the School of Optometry at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University as an Assistant Professor and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2015.

Research Interest

Older people with visual impairment decrease their functional independence, increase risk of falls and fractures, and often lead to higher risk of isolation and depression. To address this important public health issue, her research directions focus on 3 areas:
a. investigating the decline in visual and balance functions due to aging and vision loss and their impact on functional performance;
b. examining the effectiveness of rehabilitation to improve their functional performance;
c. improving understanding of visual system and brain plasticity in response to vision deficits.
