Research Overview

My research is looking at the blood vessels in the choroid - the layer at the back of the eye, behind the retina – and how these change throughout the disease process in Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). My main focus is on the larger choroidal vessels, and their changes in diameter and volume in early, atrophic, and neovascular AMD. I am also looking at diurnal variation of these vessels in healthy individuals – how the vessels change throughout the course of a day. To view these vessels, I use a technique called Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT. This technique takes scans through the back of the eye, which can be used to build 3-D images of the retina and choroid.
