The theme of our laboratory is functional analysis of the retina and optic nerve.
The retina and optic nerve are part of CNS and play an important role in various visual processing. Very interesting physiological and pathological phenomena are taking place in there. We carry out subjective and objective examinations to detect them and analyze the results to apply at the daily clinic. We have long experience on the diseases of the retina and optic nerve, particularly retinal degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion and optic nerve disorders. We have amassed the large amount of clinical data of these diseases over so many years. These clinical data are the sources of our vigorous investigations in etiology, precise clinical courses, and prognosis of diseases and evaluation of treatment effects.

We execute ERG, EOG, VEP, visual field test, etc. Especially ERG includes state-of-the-art tests like local ERG, multifocal ERG, blue-cone ERG etc. as well as ISCEV-standardized ERG. We use a wire-net sealed room especially prepared for ERG recording to provide our patients with high quality examinations. Recently “dark-adapted/light-adapted perimetry” is performed with the aim of developing a new type of visual field test for diagnosis of retinal diseases.

We are looking forward to meeting young blood to advance researches together with us.
