Mo Jalie was Head of Department of Applied Optics at City & Islington College from 1986 to 1995 where he taught optics, ophthalmic lenses and dispensing from 1964. He has written seven books, some 200 papers on ophthalmic lenses, contact lenses, intra-ocular lenses and dispensing and holds patents for aspheric spectacle lenses and intra-ocular lenses. He has been writing computer software for lens design and manufacture since 1969. His patent granted in 1980 for a series of spectacle lenses with hyperboloidal surfaces for the normal power range gave rise to a new generation of low-power aspheric lenses.
