Functional vision research: measuring vision-related outcomes in orientation and mobility - VROOM
Retinal implants and other vision-restoration treatments are being developed for people with very low vision, and translational research is needed to show whether or not these interventions are effective. Clinical trials ...
Predictors of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor treatment response in neovascular age-related macular degeneration
This thesis describes the candidate’s part time work on a project at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital and Centre for Eye Research Australia, looking at the predictors of outcome following the use anti vascular ...
Progress in uveitis: novel treatments, new disease associations, and imaging applications
Although an uncommon disease, due to its peak incidence in young adults and the often sight-threatening complications that result from it, uveitis accounts for a high socioeconomic cost to our society. Further research is ...
Predictors of outcome of anti-VEGF treatment in neovascular age-related macular degeneration
Purpose: To identify the predictors of visual acuity (VA) outcome of intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) treatment in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). ...
Retinal vascular geometry and its relationships to diabetes and diabetic retinopathy
PURPOSE: Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a major cause of visual disability worldwide. Retinal vessel diameter, measured from fundus photographs, has been shown to be predictive of DR. However, other parameters reflecting ...
Pathology of the lacrimal system and its treatment
The lacrimal system comprises the lacrimal glands, the tear film and the lacrimal drainage system (the lacrimal puncta, canaliculi, lacrimal sac and nasolacrimal duct). The lacrimal system is essential in maintaining a ...
Visual impairment in Melbourne: prevalence and socio-economic risk factors
It was hypothesised that many factors such income, education level or ethnicity influence both the prevalence of visual impairment and the ability of an individual who develops visual impairment to use rehabilitation ...
Retinal associations of diabetes and vascular disease
Background: Diabetes mellitus and vascular diseases have a significant impact on the eye. Aim: To determine the prevalence, risk factors, and racial/ethnic differences of major ...
