The goal of this program is to foster innovative, military relevant research in the following areas:
- mitigation and treatment of traumatic injuries, war related injuries and diseases to the ocular structure and visual system;
- mitigation and treatment of visual dysfunction associated with traumatic brain injury (TBI);
- ocular and visual systems diagnostic capabilities and assessment strategies;
- protection and prevention strategies;
- vision rehabilitation strategies and quality of life measures;
- epidemiological studies of military eye trauma and TBI related vision dysfunction;
- vision restoration;
- vision care education, training and simulation; and
- warfighter vision readiness and enhancement.
