Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus Research

The Division of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus is currently engaged in the following research projects: 

  • Baltimore Reading and Eye Disease Study
  • Clinical Technology Development
  • Clinical trials in amblyopia treatment, including patching and atropine eye drops for patients birth through 17 years of age
  • Surgical and optical management of crossed eyes in older adults
  • Development of a hand-held screening device to detect misaligned eyes and defocus in infants and young children automatically
  • Defining the mechanisms involved in the onset and evolution of vertical misalignments of the eyes
  • A multicenter national study of patients with early onset cataracts (age 2-21 years) that assesses the prevalence of a rare genetic cause which can be fatal later in life.
  • Pre-clinical research using animal models of multiple genetic eye diseases, including Marfan syndrome, Loeys-Dietz syndrome, Sphrintzen-Goldberg syndrome, Gyrate Atrophy, and other genetic causes of high myopia (e.g. LRPAP1) in attemp to identify new therapies to ameliorate the ocular manifestations of these conditions.
