Cynthia Roberts

Professor, Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Science at The Havener Eye Institute and Professor of Biomedical Engineering, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA

Cynthia’s research interests include corneal and ocular biomechanics in cornea, refractive surgery and glaucoma; in vivo measurement of corneal biomechanics, IOP measurement error, and ophthalmic imaging applications including corneal topography and OCT. She received a research award from the National Eye Institute of NIH to study the separate effects of IOP and stiffness on corneal biomechanics, and she has also received a foundation award to investigate a new biomechanical mechanism optic nerve damage in glaucoma, which includes the influence of the pulsatile components of both IOP and intracranial pressure. She has given over 200 National and International Invited Lectures, has published over 120 papers in peer-reviewed journals, has contributed to more than 20 book chapters and has co-edited two books on corneal topography and corneal biomechanics.
