Retinal structure and function in ageing and disease
Dr Michael Pianta
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.
