Ophthalmology Research


Ophthalmology is the clinical discipline of vision and eye health related conditions and disorders.

Research in this speciality can range from investigating the treatment for common conditions such as age related Macular Degeneration  or Glaucoma to uveitis and eye surgery interventions.  Our research can also look into Neurology related research that investigates the relationship between vision loss, the brain and the nervous system.

The Eye Care Service covers our sites of York, Scarborough and Bridlington and within this service we host a dedicated optometry and photography staff and equipment for delivery of research.

Our research consultants have a great national, international and commercial industry reputation for delivery and we work in close collaboration with the York Neuroimaging Centre at the University of York.
