The final aim of our research is to improve glaucoma care by contributing to the development of evidence-based, protocolised, and tailor-made testing strategies for the detection and monitoring of glaucoma: what test should be performed when in which person and what should be done with the test result. Many projects use data collected in the "Groningen Longitudinal Glaucoma Study", a longitudinal observational study with almost 1000 participants, begun in 2000. Other projects comprise epidemiology and physics - the latter in an unconventional mix of biophysics, optics, and psychophysics. The various themes converge into the central theme of early processing in the visual system: how are objects imaged on the retina and how are the images subsequently coded in robust neural information.
