Lindsay graduated from Cardiff University with a BSc(Hons) in Optometry and Vision Sciences and qualified as an optometrist in 2007. Following this, she worked in independent clinical practice, gaining additional qualifications in diabetic retinopathy screening, binocular vision, and glaucoma management. She returned to Cardiff University to undertake her PhD in the Optimisation of Perimetric Stimuli for Mapping Changes in Spatial Summation in Glaucoma, gaining this qualification in 2018.

Lindsay undertook a postdoctoral position as a Clinical Research Optometrist at Aston University, working with a small team on several industry-funded research projects investigating spectacle design. She then took up her current position in the School of Optometry and Vision Sciences at the University of Bradford in January 2020.

Lindsay's research interests are varied, and include the effects of eye disease (particularly glaucoma) on patients' vision, myopia management, ophthalmic public health, mental health among optometrists, and contact lens research.

Lindsay contributes to teaching on the undergraduate optometry programme, and is the co-module leader for 'Ocular Health Assessment 1', a Level 4 module containing both general and ocular anatomy and physiology, and introducing clinical assessment tools. 

Lindsay is an Editorial Board Member for the College of Optometrists' journal 'Optometry in Practice' and is a Training Lead for Women in Vision UK.

A full list of Lindsay's publications is available via her Google Scholar profile.
