Research Interests

My research interests include:
• Diabetes & its ocular complications
• Glaucoma
• Vision & falls in the elderly
• Retinal function in cystic fibrosis

My primary areas of research involve two of the major causes of blindness, diabetes mellitus and glaucoma. The early detection of both conditions is important for their management and improved prognosis, and we have been investigating the structural and functional changes using digital imaging, electrophysiological and psychophysical techniques.
