Anthony Moore, MB BS

Pediatric ophthalmologist and retinal specialist

Dr. Anthony Moore specializes in pediatric ophthalmology as well as strabismus and inherited eye diseases, particularly those affecting the retina, in adults.

Before joining UCSF, Moore served as the Duke-Elder Chair of Ophthalmology at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology in London. He was also head of the inherited eye disease service, as well as director of the pediatric ophthalmology service, at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London.

Moore's research work focuses on identifying the genetic changes underlying inherited retinal disease, particularly those affecting children, and in investigating how these changes affect the structure and function of the retina. He is also involved with clinical trials of new therapies for inherited retinal disease. The long-term aim of this research is to develop new therapies for these currently untreatable disorders.

Previously, Moore has served as president of the European Pediatric Ophthalmology Society and vice president of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. He was also the U.K. National Institute of Health Research national theme lead for rare inherited eye disorders. He was elected to the U.K. Academy of Medical Sciences in 2005. He sits on the scientific advisory board of the non-profit organization, Research to Prevent Blindness.

He has published two books, more than 40 book chapters and over 300 peer reviewed scientific papers.
