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.
