Mrs Kate Powell

Postgraduate Taught Module Leader (off site)

School of Optometry and Vision Sciences





I currently lead the MSc Medical Retina Module provided by WOPEC leading on diabetic eye disease and am the Optometric Education and Research lead at Bristol Eye Hospital (BEH) where I have worked for over 20 years. I am experienced across a range of specialties; I have a sub-specialty interest in medical retina care and work within the dynamic multi-disciplinary Medical Retina team at BEH.

For many years I have been closely involved in the Bristol and Weston Diabetic Eye Screening Programme and am particularly passionate about increasing the understanding and knowledge of optometrists in the care of patients with diabetes.
