VA Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Visual Loss

Research at the Center, located in Iowa City, IA, focuses on the early detection of potential blinding disorders of the Veteran and general population, including retinal disease, glaucoma, and traumatic brain injury. The Center tests new ways of determining the earlier signs of progression and response to treatment, and develops new treatment innovations. Areas of exploration include the use of telemedicine and computer aided diagnosis for the detection of eye disease, as well as neuroprotection and neurotrophic growth factors for prevention and healing.
