He lectures widely on topics in cornea and refractive surgery and has published over 130 peer-reviewed articles and 30 book chapters.
Michael Marmor, MD
Professor of Ophthalmology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsResearch concerns diseases of retinal function, techniques of clinical electrophysiology, and experimental studies on retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) function including fluid transport and retinal adhesiveness. Other studies consider aspects of vision and art, and ophthalmic history.
Published over 300 journal articles, chapters, books (only selected articles listed).
Bethlehem Mekonnen, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Ophthalmology
BioDr. Mekonnen is a board-certified, fellowship-trained ophthalmologist with the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford Health Care. She is also a clinical assistant professor of medicine in the Department of Ophthalmology.
Dr. Mekonnen diagnoses and treats a wide range of eye conditions, including cataracts, corneal and external eye diseases. She creates an individual, comprehensive care plan for each of her patients.
Dr. Mekonnen’s clinical research interests include exploring the most effective medical and surgical therapies for patients with corneal and external eye diseases. She has researched and published on outcomes of macular edema, described a novel surgical technique for severe ocular surface disease and described a possible new ophthalmic manifestation of a rare congenital disorder called Cobb syndrome.
Dr. Mekonnen has published work in the American Journal of Ophthalmology, Cornea: The Journal of Cornea and External Disease, and the Journal of Ophthalmic Inflammation and Infection. She has presented to her peers at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, Women in Ophthalmology (WIO) Summer Symposium, and the Annual GlaxoSmithKline Women in Science Conference.
Dr. Mekonnen is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
Artis A. Montague, MD, PhD
Clinical Professor, Ophthalmology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMulticenter Catalys Consortium Trial - To compare femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery with conventional cataract surgery
Darius M. Moshfeghi, MD
Professor of Ophthalmology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Moshfeghi leads the Stanford University Network for Diagnosis of Retinopathy of Prematurity (SUNDROP network) and the Pediatrix-Stanford collaboration TeleROP. Between these 2 screening programs, nearly 2% of United States neonatal intensive care units are being provided telemedicine screening services through Stanford University.
Heather E. Moss, MD, PhD
Professor of Ophthalmology and of Neurology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am a clinician scientist with a background in engineering, epidemiology and neuro-ophthalmology. In my research, I combine tools from these disciplines with the goal of understanding and preventing vision loss from optic nerve diseases. My focus is on papilledema, the swelling of the optic nerve head due to elevation in intracranial pressure, which we are characterizing using electrophysiological and imaging techniques. Other areas of interest are peri-operative vision loss and optic neuritis.
Prithvi Mruthyunjaya, MD, MHS
Professor of Ophthalmology and, by courtesy, of Radiation Oncology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr Mruthyunjaya has maintained a broad research interest with publications in both ocular oncology and retinal diseases.
His focus is on multi-modal imaging of ocular tumors and understanding imaging clues that may predict vision loss after ocular radiation therapy. He coordinates multi-center research on the role of genetic testing and outcomes of treatments of ocular melanoma.
In the field of retinal diseases, his interests are in intra-operative imaging to enhance surgical accuracy.
