In addition to their methodological and technical expertise, consultants are knowledgeable about ocular conditions under study in Penn vision community, about commonly used measures that are unique to vision research (visual acuity, refractive error, visual field indices, etc) and specialized statistical analysis techniques required for many experimental designs used in vision research (correlated data techniques to handle appropriately data from two eyes of same subject).
