Assessing Photoreceptor Structure And Function In Normal And Diseased Retinae

This study is currently recruiting participants.

Purpose: The high-resolution imaging studies conducted in this protocol are all aimed at understanding the properties of the photoreceptors of the human eye, both in the normal, diseased retina and diseased optic nerve.  We hope to better understand how the photoreceptor mosaic limits our visual capacity.  In the future, these results may be used to illuminate the earliest stages of retinal degenerations, opening the door to improved therapeutic approaches.

Eligibility:

  • Adults and children who have normal vision or who have abnormal vision due to retinal diseases
