RESEARCH INTERESTS:

My research interests include the long-term outcomes of glaucoma surgery on controlling intraocular pressure for neovascular glaucoma and the risk factors for ischemia and surgical failure. This includes forming an interventional treatment algorithm that results in the best vision and intraocular pressure for a specific patient depending on their severity scale (mild, moderate, or severe NVG). Risk factors are not limited to medical etiologies but include social factors such as economic status, ethnicity, medical treatment costs, and medical accessibility.
