Randy Glickman, Ph.D.



Dr. Randy Glickman's research interests are in the areas of laser bioeffects and medical applications; photosensitized free-radical reactions in the eye; light damage and repair mechanisms in the eye; retinal information processing, photodynamic therapy, optical tissue diagnostic spectroscopy, ocular pharmacology (especially mechanisms of drug penetration into the eye). 

Current projects include: an investigation of the function of histaminergic retinopetal fibers, and the development of a laser-induced optoacoustic spectroscopic method for detection of infectious agents.
