Vision and Eyes

Prof Jugnoo Rahi leads the Vision and Eyes Group. Together we have a particular interest in eye disease and visual impairment in childhood and in the early life origins of and life course influences on chronic complex eye disease in adult life. Through our research, we aim to enhance understanding of these disorders in order to improve their prevention, diagnosis and treatment, and to inform policy decisions nationally and internationally. Our research methodology includes classical, life course and genetic epidemiology, ophthalmic biostatistics and health services research. Our research team includes ophthalmic clinicians, epidemiologists, statisticians, geneticists and psychologists and we collaborate nationally and internationally with a diverse range of clinicians and scientists. 

The Vision and Eyes Group is supported by the Ulverscroft Foundation and our research projects by various grants as listed on the respective page.
