What’s the title of your project and what’s it about?

Effect of menopause and hormones on glaucoma

Using the medical records from the VA Healthcare, we are identifying a connection between menopause and glaucoma diagnoses. Further, we are looking at the effect of hormone replacement therapy on delaying the diagnosis of glaucoma. Later work would look at the impact of rate of visual decline depending on menopause diagnosis and hormone replacement therapy.
