Glaucoma Research and Diagnostic Center
The Glick Eye Institute is the home of the Glaucoma Research and Diagnostic Center, a reading site for multiple ocular blood flow studies being conducted around the world in dozens of countries.
Under the direction of Professor Alon Harris, M.S., Ph.D., FARVO, and Brent Siesky, Ph.D., the Glaucoma Research and Diagnostic Center is one of the world’s most complete laboratories quantifying ocular blood flow and metabolism. Operating within this center is a reading site for multiple ocular blood flow studies being conducted around the world with the education and mentorship of nearly 50 students each year.
Research at the GRDC focuses upon the following:
- Regulation of blood flow in the healthy and diseased eye, (including the impact of current therapy on blood flow)
- Relationship between blood flow and disc morphology
- Relationship of blood flow and visual function
- Ocular perfusion changes during sleep
- Circadian fluctuations in systemic and intraoclar fluid dynamics
