Hendrik P.N. Scholl, M.D., M.A., is the Dr. Frieda Derdeyn Bambas Professor of Ophthalmology and head of visual neurophysiology at the Wilmer Eye Institute. He specializes in medical and surgical management of retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy and has specific expertise in inherited retinal and macular degenerations. He uses the latest technologies, including electroretinography, microperimetry and high-resolution imaging, for the diagnosis of these disorders.

Dr. Scholl''s primary research interest relates to visual loss in retinal degenerations and to therapeutic measures in order to rescue vision. He uses psychophysical and electrophysiological methods to measure visual function and high-resolution topographic and tomographic imaging to investigate retinal structure with the aim of developing more efficient markers for upcoming clinical trials.

Dr. Scholl received his M.D. from the Eberhard Karls University of Tuebingen, Germany, and did his residency at the Centre for Ophthalmology, University of Tuebingen. He did a clinical research fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, UK.  He served on the ophthalmology faculty at the University of Bonn for 5 years until he was recruited to the Wilmer Eye Institute in 2010.
