Dr. Traish’s research interests reflect her two passions: resident education and pediatric cornea. She has been committed to resident cataract surgery education since 2010. At the University of Illinois, she was instrumental in starting a surgical video lecture series for residents. She was appointed to a small group within the residency education committee charged with organizing a new surgical curriculum and designing a state-of-the-art ophthalmic surgery wet lab, which was unveiled in the summer of 2015. At Mass. Eye and Ear, she plans to collaborate with the residency education leadership on projects relating to surgical education.
Her interest in pediatric cornea comes from the need to improve clinical outcomes and provide more effective treatments, especially for the population of infants born with congenital corneal disease. These diseases are often visually debilitating and lifelong. The ability to intervene with effective therapies, or sometimes simply an appropriate diagnosis and referrals for supportive services, can have a significant impact on their quality of life and future opportunities. At Mass. Eye and Ear and Boston Children’s Hospital, Dr. Traish will collaborate with colleagues to evaluate this population via clinical research projects.
