Assistant Attending Ophthalmologist, Assistant Professor

Dr. Demetriades’ primary focus is the development of novel treatments for glaucoma, the leading cause of irreversible blindness. Dr. Demetriades performs translational research in order to better understand the pathogenesis of glaucoma, as well as clinical research to establish new targets to delay and prevent the progression of glaucomatous visual loss. As a clinician-scientist, Dr. Demetriades' ultimate goal is to help patients manage their glaucoma and maintain vision throughout their lives.
