Faculty mentor: Eileen Hwang

Familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR) is a rare inherited disease that can cause permanent blindness in childhood. One process of FEVR that contributes to vision loss is traction from the vitreous gel on the retina. Such process is associated with causing posterior vitreous detachment (PVD). This research project studies the relationship between these two processes.
