Scientifc Interest

Clinical and experimental research in retinopathy and noninvasive techniques for assessment of retinal function and structure. Focus of research on relation between function, metabolism, and perfusion in the retina under various types of metabolic challenges, including hypoperfusion, hypoxia, and unstable glycemia as seen in the diabetic retinopathy and the ocular ischemic syndrome
