ABOUT DR. BLODI’S RESEARCH:
Dr. Blodi’s clinical practice and research focus on macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and other retinal diseases. She leads an ongoing age-related eye disease study that looks into the effects of supplements in the treatment of macular degeneration, among other studies. Dr. Blodi’s research has given us a better understanding of macular degeneration and helped develop different treatment options for retinal diseases. This has saved sight for people affected by these blinding diseases.
Saving sight is the most important part of our mission. The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health is devoted to preserving and protecting vision. This program is one more way to keep you informed. The Saving Sight Sessions are a series of community education programs created to share discoveries and developments to stop blinding diseases, enhance treatment and improve vision-related quality of life. Please join us as we share the ways we are transforming eye care.
