Two postdoc positions in customized vision correction and dry eye research

Advanced Vision Correction Laboratory, University of Rochester Eye Institute

Two postdoc positions are available to conduct customized vision 
correction study and dry eye research in Geunyoung Yoon's Lab in the 
University of Rochester Eye Institute.

The first position is available to work on developing customized 
contact lenses. This project uses wavefront sensors, adaptive optics 
and lens design methods to optimize correction performance with the 
lenses in both normal and highly aberrated eyes. The project also 
involves various experiments evaluating optical quality and on-eye 
performance of the lenses.

The second position is available to conduct dry eye research led by 
the multidisciplinary research team. The goal of the study is to 
objectively characterize the tear film by measuring tear parameters 
including the tear dynamics and its impact on visual quality, tear 
thickness and volume, and thickness and refractive index of the lipid 
layer. The project further investigates the relationship between 
these parameters and dry eye symptoms. The project uses the 
custom-built multimodal tear imaging system that consists of 
wavefront sensor, ocular surface optical coherence tomography and 

Successful candidates for both positions must have significant 
background in Optics. Experience in physiological optics, especially, 
assessing optical quality of the eye and tear film imaging is 
desirable although it is not necessary. Applicants should submit a 
CV, a brief statement of research experience and interest, and names 
of three references to:
