Paul Kaufman is a prominent glaucoma researcher, whose work has helped to shine light on mechanisms behind aqueous humor formation and drainage, and age-related loss of near vision. He has previously served as President and Executive Vice President of ARVO, and is a former President of the International Society for Eye Research. His current research centers on studies of the physiology, morphology, biology, biomechanics and aging of the aqueous humor formation and drainage, in order to understand the pathophysiology – and develop new therapies for – glaucoma and presbyopia.
