My research activities all relate to various aspects of Vitreoretinal Surgery, with a particular emphasis on questions which, when answered, will have relevance to the practice of clinical Vitreoretinal Surgery.
Doppler assessment of retinal capillary blood flow in diabetics
Combined scleral buckle and vitrectomy surgery for primary pseudophakic retinal detachments
Hypobaric chamber studies of patients with intraocular gas bubbles
Scanning laser ophthalmoscopic assessment of macular edema with experimental pharmacologic agents
Systemic treatment of retinal vascular occlusion
Microvascular complications of insulin dependent diabetes mellitus in young patients with eating disorders
study of the efficacy of intravitreal Hyaluronidase for ophthalmic intravitreal injection for clearance of severe vitreous hemorrhage
A study of the potential benefits of Brimonidine on retinal detachment
A study of a novel new intravitreal implant, Retisert
A study of the efficacy of sheathotomy for branch retinal vein occlusions
Radial Optic Neurotomy for central retinal vein occlusion
We are working on the development of a novel new treatment for wet macular degeneration, involving the creation of a device which combines digital ultra-high speed indocyanine green angiography and diode laser photocoagulation for choroidal neovascular membranes.
