We conduct human psychophysical studies focused on visual perceptual changes due to migraine, aging and eye diseases such as glaucoma. We have a particular interest in the earlier detection, better clinical functional assessment, monitoring and rehabilitation of age-related eye disease. The psychophysical approach is taken in collaboration with Dr Allison McKendrick from the Department of Optometry and Vision Science (DOVS) at the University of Melbourne.
