Disease Models

Many naturally occurring or induced models of retinal disease can be studied in the laboratory. In this way we can begin to understand the dominant mechanisms responsible for the human diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, retinal degeneration, and ischemic diseases of the retina following blockage of retinal vessels.

Through a process of national and international collaborations we have been using our unique technologies to measure blood flow and oxygen metabolism in the eyes of laboratory rats with diseases of greatest relevance to clinical ophthalmology.
