Dr. Rao conducts research promoting advances in glaucoma clinical care and patient education, with a primary interest in treatment adherence. Specifically, she has worked on developing educational interventions and assessments for glaucoma patients, and investigated the usefulness of laser trabeculoplasty for patients with medication adherence difficulties. She has also investigated novel surgical techniques, such as the simultaneous implantation of Ahmed and Baerveldt glaucoma drainage devices for uncontrolled intraocular pressure.
