Dr. De Gracia divides his time between running a visual optics research lab and teaching in the professional Doctor of Optometry program. His interests are centered on visual perception, the impact of the eye’s optics on the visual function, and the role of ocular movements in attaining clear vision. His ongoing research is evaluating the effect of novel multifocal solutions on presbyopic vision, the application of new multifocal designs to monovison compensations, and how ocular movements affect the development of refractive errors. Dr. De Gracia is a consultant for the contact lens and IOL industries. He is actively involved as a grant reviewer for the National Science Centre and is a journal referee in the fields of Visual Optics, Optometry, and Ophthalmology.
