Research Overview

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is believed to affect more than 14 million people in Europe and North America and is the leading cause of visual impairment in the UK. At present there are no established treatments for early AMD as its causes are not yet fully understood. Retinal hypoxia has been linked to AMD progression along with genetic, inflammation and environmental factors. My research at present is based on reducing retinal hypoxia to determine if this will stop the progression of early AMD.
