Overview

We conduct research on the pathogenesis of and new treatment methods for ocular neovascular lesions, represented by age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy as the leading causes of acquired blindness in Japan. We are currently participating in a large-scale epidemiological study (the Fujiwara-kyo Study) involving the elderly to examine the incidence of eye diseases among them and their visual function. We also examine the influence of intraocular lenses used in cataract surgery on the circadian rhythm in consideration of the role of ophthalmology in improving the elderly’s QOL, including presenting proposals for this.
