We have expertise in large collaborative epidemiological research whose themes include diabetes and cardiovascular disease, what we can do to detect and manage them better, and how these impact society more broadly.
In addition, much of the work undertaken by our Imaging, Neuroscience, Immunology, Ocular Motor, and Research Translation units are directly aimed at better identification and monitoring of vision disorders or conditions with associated visual involvement. Areas of focus include glaucoma, anterior eye disease, diabetes, migraine, and the study of ageing changes to vision over the lifespan.
Research groups working within this theme include:
- The National Vision Research Institute
- Eye Movement Laboratory
- Optological Laboratory
- Ocular Physiology Laboratory
- Clinical Psychophysics Unit
- Imaging Retinal Cells Human Unit
- Retinal Structure & Function Laboratory
- Ocular Epidemiology Unit
- Visual and Cognitive Neuroscience Unit
- Visual Functions Unit
- Corneal and Ocular Immunology Unit
- Anterior Eye, Clinical Trials and Research Translation Unit
