The WAIVS project brings together a group of engineers, basic science researchers, and clinicians who are building an imaging lab featuring an Adaptive Optics (AO) platform.
Many emerging technologies may not adequately take into account the needs and preferences of people with visual impairments, including low vision.
The UW Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences is proud to be a leader among our peer institutions in publication output, year after year. Our success is the result of collaborations across campus and across the world.
After nearly 50 years of the Fundus Photograph Reading Center, we have renamed this institution the Wisconsin Reading Center to better reflect our increased range of imaging modalities and points to growth in areas such as artificial intelligence and deep learning.
There’s hope that both cell and gene therapies can be used to delay or reverse the effects of blinding disorders and other visual impairments.
The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences strives to utilize the research and knowledge of the many amazing departments across the UW-Madison campus.
