Research conducted by the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences ranges from basic sciences, such as genetic susceptibility and molecular mechanisms of eye diseases, to clinical sciences, such as the effects of ophthalmologic interventions as well as the development and evaluation of new products, devices, diagnostic and treatment protocols. The breadth of the research program enables both basic and clinical scientists to work closely together to not only broaden our fundamental understanding of glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy but to assure that the clinical impact of our research is achieved for patients.
