Dr. Zebardast’s research focuses on epidemiology and global health. Working with international colleagues, she established a multicenter trial to study angle-closure glaucoma. Additionally, she has used large datasets and statistical methods to understand the prevalence of eye disease and its functional impact.
Currently, she aims to use anterior segment imaging, in particular swept source OCT technology, to better understand angle-closure glaucoma progression. Additionally, she plans to use big data and machine learning methodologies for glaucoma detection and characterization of progression. She hopes that this work will not only optimize glaucoma diagnosis, but also help establish care in under-served regions, thereby decreasing the global burden of this disease.
