Previous Experience

In 1983, Dr. Cadera joined the faculty of the University of Western Ontario where he participated in numerous research projects focused on the cause and treatment of strabismus. He has traveled extensively to third world countries with Project ORBIS. He has been active in teaching and research, and has published and lectured in many parts of the world.
