Academic Focus

My basic and clinic research focuses upon (1) the role of macrophages in macular degeneration, (2) mechanisms to inhibit angiogenesis independent of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and (3) the treatment of anti-VEGF resistant macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusion, and diabetic retinopathy.

Clinical Focus

My clinic focus includes the diagnosis, medical, and surgical management of retinal detachment, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion, and secondary intraocular lenses.
