Bradley Dougherty receives OLERF grant

Dr. Bradley Dougherty, assistant professor of optometry at The Ohio State University, received the 2016 Ohio Lions Eye Research Foundation Dick Neiderhauser AMD Grant for his project “Socioeconomic status affects health.”

His study will examine in greater depth his recent findings suggesting that among patients with age-related macular degeneration, those with lower socioeconomic status were more likely to have worse outcomes.

By examining a broad array of factors that may connect socioeconomic status and vision outcomes in these patients, he expects to develop strategies for improving their visual outcomes.
