 Participate in a Study

Research subject imagingThe Advanced Ocular Imaging Program is a destination of choice for local, national and international vision scientists and ophthalmologists who refer patients for various imaging studies. We conduct imaging studies on a wide range of eye diseases, including inherited retinal degenerations, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and other neurodegenerative conditions. Visit the Research Studies page for a list of studies that are currently enrolling subjects, and visit the Volunteer section of our website for more information about how you can participate.

Improving Vision Through Advanced Imaging

mirror and filter wheel The Advanced Ocular Imaging Program, directed by Joseph Carroll, PhD, provides an infrastructure to promote the development and use of translational ocular imaging tools to improve detection, diagnosis, and management of eye disease.  Partnering with collaborators around the world, our members include vision scientists, clinicians, and engineers at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Support the AOIP!

The Advanced Ocular Imaging Program could not exist without the generosity and support of many foundations, federal agencies, and individual donors. Funds donated to the program are used to build and acquire new imaging equipment, to help train students and fellows in the program, to enable the presentation of our research findings at scientific meetings, and to support numerous staff positions for studying multiple eye conditions.  Contact Joe Carroll, PhD, if you are interested in supporting our program at any level, or click below to donate securely online.
Shown below are some of the organizations whose support was instrumental in establishing the Advanced Ocular Imaging Program, and whose continued support is gratefully acknowledged.  Our sponsors page recognizes additional people and groups whose contributions have helped make this research possible and provides links to the organizations.
