Research areas within the field of ophthalmology include cataract, external ocular and corneal disease, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, ophthalmic pathology, orbital and ophthalmic plastic surgery, pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus, and retinal disease. Each year the Institute's faculty members carry out a broad array of laboratory-based and patient-based studies in these fields.
