Main Areas and Themes of Research

We study new ophthalmologic treatments. Especially, we target vitreo-retinal diseases and research the relationship between therapeutic results and retinal or choroidal vessels in the viewpoint of stages and conditions. We also target amblyopia and strabismus and research the neurological mechanism.

Clinical Features

  1. Clinical application of drug and photodynamic therapy to age-related macular degeneration
  2. Small incision vitrectomy to diabetic retinopathy or retinal detachment, etc: We use25G, 23G and 20G surgical systems.
  3. Glaucoma surgery: We adopted triple surgery (PEA, IOL, Vitrectomy) to acute angle-closure glaucoma in addition to PI and LI.
  4. Treatments of strabismus and amblyopia involve not only surgery but also glasses, drops, and vision therapy.

Educational Features

Visual anatomy, functions, examinations and disorders are lectured systematically. In the first grade, medical students visit the department of Ophthalmology for a week. They will excise the examinations of visual acuity and ocular pressure and visit an operation room. In the third grade, they will attend a lecture concerning injury and infectious diseases. In the fourth grade, systematic ophthalmologic lectures will be scheduled. They will excise the examination of fundus. In the fifth grade, they visit the department of Ophthalmology and experience special examinations. They can see surgeries through a surgical microscopy in an operation room. They will visit an outside clinic. They will attend the ophthalmologic conference which has been held on Wednesday and learn the attitude as a doctor.
