Research Summary

I am currently the director of the Visual Field Reading Center at the University of Iowa. I have skills in the evaluation and interpretation of visual field information, and in determining the relationship between optic disc hemorrhages and visual field loss. I have maintained a long-standing interest in structure-function relationships in glaucoma.
