Associate Professor of Optometry
Associate Dean for Research
PhD 1997 (University of California, Berkeley)
Dr. Rowan Candy received her Membership of the British College of Optometrists (1990) after completing her B.Sc. (Hons) in Optometry at the University of Wales, Cardiff (1989). She then practiced optometry for two years. Dr. Candy received her Ph.D. in Vision Science from the University of California, Berkeley (1997) and completed her postdoctoral work at the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute in San Francisco (1997-2000). She joined the faculty of Indiana University School of Optometry in 2000 as Assistant Professor of Optometry. Dr. Candy has achieved the rank of Associate Professor of Optometry, and she was appointed Associate Dean for Research in 2007. Her research involves studies of normal and abnormal visual development in human infants. She is developing an infant clinic at the School of Optometry where she supervises optometry students as they learn to work with infant patients. Dr. Candy is a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, and a member of both the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology and the Optical Society of America.
