Retinal structure and function in ageing and disease

Project Details

Retinal disease processes are superimposed  on normal ageing changes. Characterising these ageing changes is important to  provide a context in which to understand disease. This project aims to  characterise the changes in retinal structure and function that occur during  ageing and to understand the interplay between these changes and the changes  that occur in disease processes. The disease studied could be (but is not limited to): glaucoma, high myopia, age-related macular degeneration.
