 The Retinal Research Group studies cellular changes that occur following retinal detachment and reattachment. They are also developing new therapies for the treatment of retinal detachment. In this process, they are generating thousands of high quality images of tissue samples in the form of electron micrographs and laser scanning confocal images.

Understanding the mechanisms behind the loss and recovery of vision following retinal detachment and reattachment has been the focus of retinal biologists for many years. Analysis is usually done by comparing normal to detached retinas using sections and wholemounts, and considering the difference between two patterns.
