Finding new ways to manage glaucoma

In the Experimental Glaucoma and Imaging Laboratory, we’re focused on developing a better understanding of glaucoma pathology. These new levels of understanding will lead to:

  • earlier detection
  • better therapeutic options
  • delayed progression of the disease

Improvements like these will benefit all glaucoma patients—whether they’ve just been diagnosed or they’ve been suffering from the disease for years.

A collaborative team

Excellent research requires people who are able to look at all angles. In the Experimental Glaucoma and Imaging Lab, we achieve this by bringing together researchers and trainees from a variety of backgrounds.

By tapping into the expertise of our people, we’re able to clinically translate the knowledge we uncover by developing, investigating and validating new models for treatment, detection and delayed progression.

State-of-the-art technology

Our laboratory is well equipped to monitor retinal neurons, thanks to advanced technology that includes:

  • optical coherence tomography
  • confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy
  • multiphoton and conventional fluorescence imaging

Currently, we’re using this technology to do in vitro analysis of retinal ganglion cells and axonal transport proteins after optic nerve damage, and to perform longitudinal in vivo imaging.
