Noor Haziq Saliman is an optometrist graduated from Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia. Once qualified, he was appointed as a research assistant at the department of Optometry and Vision Sciences Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and subsequently enrolled as a master student researching the visual performance, eye movement and abnormal head posture of visually impaired schoolchildren with infantile nystagmus. He then took a teaching position as a lecturer at SEGi University, Malaysia before pursuing a PhD at The University of Manchester in 2015. Haziq’s PhD investigated the subclinical inflammation of the ocular surface and adnexa in response to different types of contact lens material, modality and care system. His research employed several clinical assessments including in vivo confocal microscopy, impression cytology and tear fluid sampling, and further analysed using immunological approach. Haziq is now a postdoctoral research fellow under the Neuroscience & Ophthalmology group, Institute of Inflammation and Ageing, where his research focuses on investigating the longitudinal changes of the retina and optic nerve head, as well as visual functions in TBI patients.
