Background Information 
Professional profile:

Miss Maino is a Consultant Ophthalmologist with extensive expertise in treating adult and paediatric ocular motility problems (double vision, strabismus (squint), abnormal head posture, reading difficulties/dyslexia) with surgical, medical and optical treatments.

Miss Maino has also a special interest in diagnosing and treating acquired problems (e.g. caused by direct trauma, road accidents, stroke, cancer treatment) both in the field of eye movement and perception of images.

Miss Maino studied Medicine at University of Bari, Italy, obtaining a first class honours degree in 1998. She then worked as Glaucoma Research Fellow at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London in 1999-2000, before completing specialist training in Manchester (2001-2008).

In 2008, she undertook an internationally renowned fellowship in Strabismus and Paediatric Ophthalmology at Moorfields Eye Hospital under Mr JP Lee, Miss G Adams and Prof A Moore. She started working as Consultant at Stepping Hill Hospital in 2009 where she has been appointed to develop and lead a specialist Strabismus and Paediatric service.

Miss Maino has an interest in medical education and research, actively participating to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes as organiser, lecturer and trainer. She has published over 30 peer-reviewed papers in international journals. She regularly reviews and presents papers at national and international conferences.

Personal profile:

I am motivated by the impact that strabismology and paediatric ophthalmology have on patients either by maximising vision or by improving their appearance, employment prospects and quality of life. I find this very rewarding. I enjoy communicating with patients and building a strong rapport with them and their families.

I regularly go to the theatre, art exhibitions, concerts (classical and obscure rock bands). I particularly enjoy reading Victorian ghost stories, watching foreign cinema and paintings by Russian avant-garde artists. I also enjoy mid-distance running and scuba diving, I am studying Hindi.
