J. Jason McAnany PhDAssociate Professor of Ophthalmology; Director, Clinical Psychophysics and Electrophysiology Laboratory
Dr. McAnany joined the Department of Ophthalmology in September 2011 as a member of the research faculty. He is the principal investigator of a National Eye Institute research grant, Mechanisms Limiting Visual Performance in Retinal Degenerations (R00EY019510). Dr. McAnany has also received funding from the National Eye Institute for his project, Mechanisms of Early Functional Loss in Diabetic Eye Disease (R01EY026004), which aims to study neural abnormalities of the retina in patients who have diabetes.
His research is focused on defining the relationship between visual dysfunction and the underlying disease processes using psychophysical, electrophysiological, and other noninvasive test procedures, with the goal of developing novel methods for diagnosing and monitoring the progression of visual dysfunction.
