  • Dr Bartlett’s research portfolio is broadly based around age-related macular degeneration, and has included the development and evaluation of ophthalmic instrumentation, nutrition for ocular disease, clinical trials, the development of hand-held technologies for people with low vision, and investigations of the psychology of nutritional behaviour. This range of research has been made possible through her collaborations with engineers, computer scientists, clinicians and health psychologists, and is linked by the aim to impact on the lives of those people living with ocular diseases.

  • Specific topics include:

  • Ocular nutrition
  • Low vision
  • Macular pigment
  • Ophthalmic instrumentation
  • Ocular physiology
  • Electrophysiology
