Tudor Cosmin Tepelus

Current Research Projects

  • Genetic control of the gain of emmetropization in the chick model
    To find out whether the biochemical mechanisms responsible for ocular changes that establish emmetropia were similar in case of deprivation of form vision, +7D lenses treatment and -7D lenses treatment.
  • Control of eye shape by different patterns of peripheral defocus
    Developing and testing lenses that impose myopia or hyperopia to the peripheral retina.

Methodology

During the experiments with chickens we use infrared photoretinoscopy for measuring the refractive state (central retina - 0 deg, -45 deg – nasal retina and +45 deg - temporal retina) and A-scan ultrasonography for measuring axial eye length.
