The overall goal of the VISION project is to discover neuroprotective strategies in three separate mouse models of injury to the visual axis, in order to identify potential candidates for the treatment of combat eye injuries and preserve vision in our injured warfighters. We have established three different mouse models of ocular injury with different injury- initiating mechanisms i.e. optic nerve crush, retinal ischemiareperfusion, and chronic ocular hypertension. We have developed techniques to quantify damage to the retina, optic nerve, and visual axis in the brain i.e. superior colliculus that are damaged in these three models.
