Research Focus: Developmental factors in congenital esotropia, retinopathy of prematurity, retinoblastoma, vision testing in preverbal infants
The most important phases of visual system development occur in the first few months to first few years of life. Thus, most childhood eye diseases that impair vision also interfere with the normal development of the visual system. Dr. Steven Archer assesses the development of visual functions such as acuity, stereopsis (depth perception), and ocular alignment in infants whose visual systems have developed normally and in those with pathological conditions such as congenital esotropia or congenital cataracts.
Dr. Archer has ongoing projects looking at the psycho-social benefit of the correction of strabismus in children and causes of double vision after refractive surgery in adults.
