The School currently has three research themes:
This group is concerned with improving our understanding of the human visual system, both in normal and abnormal functioning. We use psychophysical, clinical and electrophysiological techniques to improve the detection of visual problems and to enhance the quality of life for those with visual defects.
This group is concerned with understanding at the molecular level the mechanical, optical and hydrodynamic properties of the cornea, sclera, crystalline lens and lens zonules.
This group is engaged in multidisciplinary investigations of the basis of eye disease, from the molecular to the brain systems level with a view to devising novel interventions and/or treatments for a variety of ocular conditions.
