He has lectured widely on the topic of Low Vision and the Aging Eye both in the UK and internationally.
More recently, he has been involved on a consultancy basis with a pioneering project based at Ben Gurion University and the Holon Institute in Israel where the principles of image enhancement, magnification and projection are being used to construct a compact, low-weight low vision goggle that is critically needed for the visually impaired.
Mr. Salasnik is one of the only optometrists in the country to have received a Certificate in Diabetic Care from Warwick University as part of a multidisciplinary approach to improving diabetic care in England.
Apart from his main speciality, he also particularly enjoys working with children and was the recipient of the Adrian Evans Memorial Prize from the Institute of Optometry in 2001 for exceptional skills in clinical paediatric optometry.
