I have been dedicated to the field of diabetic eye disease for over 15 years.  My mission is to prevent diabetes-related eye disease and vision loss through accurate detection, comprehensive patient education and compassionate care. My research interests include the study of retinal vessels as a predictor for systemic disease and retinopathy progression and its correlation to known and unknown risk factors.
