Thomas Barnes' research interests involve high-resolution imaging of the retina, postsurgical aberrations of the eye's optics, and optic atrophy in glaucoma. Clinical interests include dry eye, ocular rosacea, allergic conjunctivitis, diabetic retinal screening and Plaquenil screening. Barnes is a lecturer in optics, refraction and contact lenses.
