Description

Seeing the world through new eyes:
Sight restoration from the perspective of a scientist and a patient

Advances in medicine and technology are enabling the possible restoration of sight in the blind.  Learning to see again can be an extraordinary challenge. UW Professor Geoffrey Boynton will discuss his research to develop ‘virtual patients’ that demonstrate sight recovery by simulating restored vision.  He and guest Michael May will discuss learning how to see with ‘new eyes’ after corneal transplant surgery.

Geoffrey Boynton, PhD, Professor, University of Washington 
and special guest, Michael May, Sight Recovery Patient

This free, public series is made possible by generous bequests from Professor Allen L. Edwards and Roger B. Loucks.

Registration requested.
