Current Research in Neuro-Ophthalmology

Dr. McCulley examines MRI scans

The Wilmer Eye Institute Neuro-Ophthalmology Division is currently working on the following research projects.:

  • Dr. Tim McCulley is investigating the pathophysiology of blepharoptosis (droopy eyelids) which may lead to non-surgical management options.
  • Dr. Eric Singman and Dr. TIm McCulley are involved in the development of computer and structural models of traumatic optic neuropathy.
  • Dr. Amanda Henderson is involved in translational research investigating potential treatment options for non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy in an animal model of this condition.

    She also is involved in clinical research evaluating the role of altered retinal inhibition in traumatic brain injury, as well as investigating the association between retinal structural and microvascular alterations, and brain structure and neurocognitive impairment in patients with HIV.
  • Dr. Andrew Carey is presently working to validate methods for measuring vision loss, as well as a new home monitoring method for observiing vision loss for patients with pituitary tumors.
