Claude Burgoyne

The Power List 2016

Claude Burgoyne

Van Buskirk Chair for Ophthalmic Research, Director, Optic Nerve Head Research Laboratory, Devers 
Eye Institute, Portland, Oregon

An optic nerve head imaging legend, Claude Burgoyne currently investigates the effects of aging and experimental glaucoma on the load-bearing connective tissues of the primate optic nerve head within SD-OCT 3D histormophometric reconstructions. Building upon this capability, his laboratory is now using SD-OCT of the deep tissues of the optic nerve head to visualize and quantify 3D OCT optic nerve head reconstructions, with a long-term goal of predicting how an individual optic nerve head will respond to a given level of intraocular pressure. In 2015, Burgoyne was awarded the American Glaucoma Society Clinician-Scientist Award.

Here, we celebrate 100 reasons to be proud of ophthalmology.
