The Department of Ophthalmology Faculty are advancing research into the origins of ocular disesases and creating the newest diagnostic and treatment modalities. The world-leading community at Stanford University conducts research in such areas as neuroprotection and optic nerve regeneration, retinal pathophysiology and genetics, retinal neurobiology and prosthetic vision, novel microsurgical tools and therapeutic lasers, advanced diagnostics and imaging, ophthalmic tissue engineering and corneal prosthetics, ocular microbiology and stem cells.
We invite all of our prospective donors, patients and collaborators to explore our research in the basic and translational sciences and in clinical care.
We also encourage you to browse our career opportunities for faculty, career opportunities for staff, and opportunites to support vision research at Stanford.
Research efforts in the Department of Ophthalmology span both the basic and translational sciences and clinical care.
