Vision and Eyes

We have a particular interest in eye disease & visual impairment in childhood and in the early life origins of and lifecourse 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, lifecourse 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.
