Penn State Hershey Eye Center research is critical in providing the best possible patient care. Modern research demands a broad range of approaches to solve complex problems. Penn State faculty from many departments participate in both clinical and basic research to improve treatments for diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, pediatric eye disease, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion and corneal wound healing. The Penn State Hershey Eye Center is dedicated to supporting cutting edge research which translates to the provision of up-to-date eye care treatments for our patients in central Pennsylvania and beyond.
