Whilst a senior researcher at the Medical Research Council Applied Psychology Unit, Professor Wilkins designed the Intuitive Colorimeter, the first calibrated instrument for the prescribing of Precision Tinted Lenses. The Intuitive Colorimeter is now used by vision professionals around the world.
Professor Wilkins has authored three books and published more than 200 articles in scientific journals. He remains committed to best practice in treating Visual Stress through colour .
