Priority Research Areas: Opportunities for Donations to Drive Discovery

During the next 5 years, the Glaucoma Center of Excellence (GCE) proposes to develop improvements in the diagnosis and therapy of glaucoma in 3 areas of focus: research, glaucoma care, and education.  The vision for the Center is dramatically to improve the outcome for those affected by glaucoma worldwide by development and implementation of diagnostic and therapeutic methods. Click on the links below to learn more about each priority:

  1. Improving the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma worldwide (Drs. Friedman, Ramulu, and Quigley)

  2. Decreasing the impact of vision damage due to glaucoma on the quality of life of those affected (Drs. Ramulu, Boland, and Jampel)

  3. Developing novel neuroprotective treatments for glaucoma that will complement and extend currently available treatment approaches (Drs. Zack, Quigley, and Welsbie)

  4. Initiating a national Glaucoma Research Network for major clinical studies (Drs. Boland, Friedman, and Ramulu)

  5. Better quantitative risk assessment and use of electronic information systems (Dr. Boland)

  6. Optimized diagnostic testing, visit frequency, and treatments for glaucoma. These will be implemented and evaluated in an ongoing fashion to determine the most cost-effective treatment paradigm (Drs. Jampel, Friedman)

  7. Replacement of lecture format with focused reading, online audio/visual didactic materials, and seminars with measured outcomes for resident training. Online modular learning in custom software to teach diagnostic evaluation and decision-making for glaucoma practitioners internationally (Drs. Ramulu, Quigley).
