My Work

Our group's work spans from ophthalmic epidemiology, including diabetic eye screening through clinical work and clinical trials. We work predominantly on common blinding eye diseases from the point of diagnosis, treatment options, imaging and image analysis to qualitative research in education, training of wide variety of healthcare professionals. Our group consists of trained and certified ophthalmic image analysers, statisticians, clinicians, qualitative research specialists, and research students and post-docs at different stages of their career. We have ongoing collaboration with a large number of groups around the world in imaging, image analysis in wide variety of ophthalmic diseases. We also work with the Global Burden of Diseases group on the visual data.
