Dr. Swenor’s research is at the intersection of aging and ophthalmology. Her primary research focus is to determine how visual impairment and eye disease affect functioning and quality of life trajectories in older adults. Dr. Swenor has epidemiologic expertise in longitudinal study design and analysis. Her current research includes examining neurocognitive, mobility, and reading outcomes in those with visual impairments, and is working to develop interventions aimed at improving functioning in older adults with vision loss.
