March Cafe: David Williams - "The Limits of Human Vision"

The next Science Cafe will be tomorrow, March 26, 7pm at the Pittsford Plaza Barnes and Noble:

“The Limits of Human Vision”
Prof. David R. Williams,
Dean for Research of Arts, Science & Engineering
Director of the Center for Visual Science
University of Rochester

David Williams is one of the world's leading experts on human vision and has pioneered new technologies that are improving the eyesight of people around the globe, from the legally blind to those with 20/20 vision. His laboratory developed an automated method to measure and correct the optical defects of the eye far more accurately than had been possible before. This development has improved laser refractive surgery and the design of contact lenses, and is a key technology in a camera that can take the sharpest pictures ever of the retina inside the living eye. Williams is the author of more than 100 papers and patents, a Fellow of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, the Optical Society of America, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is the recipient of the Tillyer Medal from the Optical Society of America, the Bressler Prize from the Jewish Guild for the Blind, the Friedenwald Award from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, and the António Champalimaud Vision Award.

Our April Cafe will be "The Human Microbial Biome", by Prof. Steven Gill, Associate Professor of Microbiology & Immunology in the School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Rochester.
