CENTER FOR EYE EPIDEMIOLOGY

The Center for Eye Epidemiology promotes interdisciplinary investigations into blinding diseases of public health importance. Center faculty have expertise in epidemiology, biostatistics, health services research, eye diseases associated with aging, public health and international health. They collaborate with ophthalmologists, geriatricians and statisticians around the world to advance knowledge related to the causes, prevention and consequences of specific eye diseases.

A major focus of the Center is the assessment of the health care of this country's elderly patients. Faculty are studying the Medicare database maintained by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to identify and evaluate trends in the delivery of eye care. Utilizing epidemiological models, faculty are also investigating the prevalence, health-related quality of life and familial inheritance of age related macular degeneration and glaucoma, leading causes of vision loss in the elderly population. Additionally, faculty are engaged in federally funded research to evaluate the consequences of visual impairment in the elderly and the development of interventions designed to decrease accidents and falls among older persons.
