Welcome to the VISION RESEARCH CENTER
Thank you for taking time to learn more about our efforts at the Vision Research Center (VRC) that ultimately aim to improve the lives of those afflicted with eye disease today and tomorrow.
At the VRC, we are at the cutting edge of vision research, attracting the brightest minds in the field to test new ideas and concepts using state-of-the-art equipment to develop cures for diseases that affect the retina, including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma.
The effects of these blinding diseases will continue to impact a significantly greater number of people. With an aging Baby Boomer population, and the prevalence of eye-related disorders due to age, diabetes, and other conditions, the work of the VRC is paramount.
Our research is vigorous. Not only do we test new ideas and concepts in our basic research, we also take knowledge and treatments already available and improve them through translational research. In this way, our research goes from bench to bedside in the form of therapies and techniques to improve patients’ lives.
At the VRC, we maintain a strong tradition of being the first in the development of new clinical therapies and new tools that aid clinicians in treating patients who suffer from eye conditions. Our current research efforts for age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma will allow us to advance the research further in the hope of developing cures.
The VRC is truly a “Vision for the Future” right here…right now.
