The Eye Center established the Laboratory for Eye Research, the first of its kind in the Southeast in 1964. The early laboratory housed leading scientists who conducted research on the causes and treatment of glaucoma and cataracts.
A number of “firsts” have occurred at the Eye Center, many during the past 20 years: pivotal clinical trials, innovative treatments and procedures for numerous vision disorders.
Today's research goal is the translation of laboratory findings into treatments for eye diseases and for the prevention of blindness. Our researchers have a profound commitment to studying age-related macular degeneration. Laboratory and clinical research includes antioxidants, new drug delivery systems, retinal cell transplantation, gene therapy, and retinal translocation surgery.
