Teresa C. Chen, M.D.
Associate Professor of Ophthalmology, Department of Ophthalmology, Harvard Medical School
Dr. Chen’s research interests include new imaging technologies for the earlier diagnosis and better treatment of glaucoma patients. She is the leader for the initial clinical studies that evaluate spectral domain optical coherence tomography for glaucoma care. For several years, she has been the clinical collaborator of Johannes de Boer, Ph.D., who built the first prototype video-rate spectral domain optical coherence tomography machine, which is used for ultra-high speed ultra-high resolution imaging of the optic nerve and retinal nerve fiber layer.
Dr. Chen’s clinical research and expertise also includes the pediatric glaucomas. She has collaborated with world-renowned pediatric glaucoma specialist David Walton, M.D., for over 10 years in various clinical and research projects.
