Hua Bi, O.D., Ph.D., FAAO, associate professor at Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) College of Optometry, was awarded Diplomate in Vision Science of the American Academy of Optometry (AAO) at the organization’s annual meeting in Chicago in October. Approximately 7 percent of Fellows of the AAO have achieved the distinction of being a Diplomate. Less than 10 percent of practicing optometrists are Fellows of the AAO.

Dr. Hua Bi joined the faculty at NSU’s College of Optometry in 2008 and currently holds the rank of Associate Professor. She received her optometry degree with honors and Ph.D. degree in Vision Science from the University of Houston. She is the Instructor of Record of Visual Optics course, Visual Neurophysiology course, and Introduction to Binocular Vision course and serves as clinical preceptor in the Visual Electrodiagnostic Clinic at the Eye Care Institute of NSU.

Dr. Bi’s research interests include visual electrophysiology, evaluation of ocular structure and function in normal and pathological visual systems, binocular vision, color vision deficiency, and refractive anomalies. Dr. Bi has authored papers in top peer reviewed journals such as Proceedings of National Academy of Science USA, Cerebral Cortex, Investigative Ophthalmology and Vision Science, Journal of Neurophysiology, British Journal of Ophthalmology, and Optometry and Vision Science, as well as a book chapter in Primate Vision. Dr. Bi has provided clinical lectures nationally and internationally in the areas of visual electrodiagnostics and binocular vision.

The American Academy of Optometry (AAO) enhances excellence in optometric practice by fostering research and disseminating knowledge in vision science through its journal, Optometry and Vision Science, and the continuing education presented at its annual meeting. Fellows of the Academy are committed to the premise that learning is a lifelong obligation of a professional, as is the commitment to expand the profession’s knowledge base through ongoing fellowship and exchange.
