Research Focus

Robert’s research focuses on the epidemiology and risk factors for onset and progression of retinal diseases as well as their functional impact, assessing socio-economis as well as quality of life aspects. For this, he built up several cohorts, both clinical and community based. In addition, he has a strong interest in developing and refining outcomes measures for clinical research in ophthalmology.
