About our work
The Human Visual Function Core within the Ophthalmic Genetics and Visual Function Branch provides expertise and technical support in electrophysiology and psychophysics to the ophthalmology clinical program at the NEI. The Section is also extensively involved in the development and design of functional outcome measures for clinical trials involving retinal disease.
Our recent research includes the launch of a natural history of Stargardt like macular dystrophy 3 caused by mutations in ELOVL4. A further research interest includes the study of mobility using a virtual reality system in patients advanced retinal disease.
