In the words of one of her many nominators: “Helen Danesh-Meyer was the first female professor of ophthalmology and the youngest professor in a surgical specialty in New Zealand. Several aspects of her clinical research have influenced and altered clinical management strategies in the international arena, in particular her work on imaging of the retinal nerve fibre layer in Alzheimer’s Disease and chiasmal compression. She pioneered quantitative evaluation of the optic nerve and its morphological changes.”
