Professor and Director of UCLA Mobile Eye Clinic.
My research focus has been on the public health impact, risk factors, and treatments of the main causes of blindness in the developed and developing world: cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration. Since my last review, I have continued to publish on findings from the Ocular Hypertension Treatment Study (OHTS), the Incidence of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (IAMD), the Thessaloniki Eye Study (TES), and the Study of Osteoporotic Fractures- Eye Study (SOF-ES). In addition, I have begun investigating sources of visual impairment in children along with potential interventions (Scientific Paper #108 and Gerald Oppenheimer Family Foundation Center for Prevention of Eye Disease grant) as well as potential genetic risk factors for age-related macular degeneration (Scientific Paper #84 and American Health Assistance Foundation and National Eye Institute grants) and glaucoma (Gerald Oppenheimer Family Foundation Center for Prevention of Eye Disease grant). I reported that even for elderly women with age-related macular degeneration, quitting smoking can slow down the development of the late stages of the disease (Scientific Paper #95).
