Dr. Fuensanta Vera-Diaz’s Lab

Professor Fuensanta Vera-Diaz conducts research on the effect of image perception on visual functioning in diseases and disorders (e.g., amblyopia) affecting central and peripheral vision, along with the progression of refractive errors, particularly myopia.

Her recent areas of study have included “Signals that trigger myopia eye movements” and “Blur perception problems.”

Dr. Vera-Diaz received a Scientific Research Career Development Award from the American Academy of Optometry and an R01 award from NEI/NIH to conduct this research.
