Professor Jodhbir Mehta graduated from Guys and St Thomas’s Medical School, University of London, UK in 1995. He completed his basic and advanced specialist training at Moorfields Eye Hospital, UK and sub-specialised fellowship training in Cornea External Disease and Refractive Surgery at Moorfields Eye Hospital and Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC).He is a member of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, UK; Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh; American Academy of Ophthalmology; Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology; Singapore-Malaysian Ophthalmology Society; Asian Corneal Society and The Corneal Society (US).Professor Mehta has won 45 awards in the UK and internationally for clinical and research work, most recently the Nakajima award for 2013 (Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology), American Academy of Ophthalmology Senior Achievement Award 2017 and Coster Lecture from the Australian Corneal Society 2018.His work profile is divided between clinical work (seeing patients) and research. His clinical work is mainly in corneal transplantation - both basic and advanced forms, anterior segment reconstruction and in refractive surgery.Professor Mehta’s research interests cover all aspects of corneal external disease and refractive surgery from basic science, translational and clinical research. These include laboratory-based research investigating the culturing of human corneal endothelial cell proliferation and studies on patients with corneal genetic disorders; translational research involving the use of different polymers for skirts for an artificial cornea; development of a new instrument for corneal transplantation; novel techniques for effects of femtosecond ablation on stromal ablation and development of novel drug delivery devices.His clinical based research involves research into imaging devices for the cornea; case comparative cohorts of new selective tissue transplantation procedures compared to penetrating keratoplasty; examining complications and outcomes of these new procedures. He is also involved in collaborative research studies in randomised controlled clinical trials in dry eye and a large multicentre infectious keratitis study.Professor Jodhbir Mehta is also committed to clinical teaching other surgeons both in Singapore and internationally in USA, Europe and Asia on Advanced forms of corneal transplantation and Corneal Imaging and has been invited worldwide to give lectures on these surgical techniques.
