Imaging with Vision
The Advanced Imaging Research Laboratory is a team of ophthalmologists, engineers, software specialists, statisticians, and trainees that focus primarily on glaucoma research. Glaucoma, the second leading cause of blindness worldwide, is a neurodegenerative disease that affects the retina and optic nerve of the eye. There is currently no known cure for glaucoma, and therefore early disease detection is of the utmost importance for vision conservation. We use a variety of advanced imaging devices and tools in order to detect glaucoma as soon as possible, monitor glaucomatous progression, and investigate new theories about the cause and pathogenesis of the disease.
