North Texas Eye Research Institute

NTERI Faculty

The North Texas Eye Research Institute (NTERI) is changing the world with new discoveries through basic and clinical eye research.

Since 1992, our researchers and clinicians in the field of visual science and ophthalmology have been driven to increase awareness about disease development and the need for novel therapies, especially among ethnic and minority populations who have or will develop debilitating vision disorders and related health disparities.

Our mission

  • Initiate and facilitate collaborative projects in vision research
  • Develop innovative multidisciplinary graduate training programs
  • Engage and inform the community on the importance of eye diseases and vision research
  • Attain research outcomes that will lead to the development of new and effective treatments for ocular diseases, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, optic neuritis, and dry eye disease
