About Dr. Mares’s Research
Dr. Julie Mares focuses her research on how lifestyle and dietary practices can affect eye health as we age. Her research looks at how, why and what lifestyle and dietary practices can influence the aging of our eyes, and eye conditions that commonly compromise vision as we age, such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
Dr. Mares’ research findings suggest practical recommendations for healthy living at any age, involving the food we eat, exercises we can do and dietary supplements that may help or harm us along the way.
Currently, Dr. Mares is currently a professor at the University of Wisconsin Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science and a member of the Nelson Institute of Environmental Studies and University of Wisconsin Institute on Aging.
Please join us, on October 26, 2017.
