Dr Damon Wong is a Junior Principal Investigator in the Ocular Imaging Department at the Singapore Eye Research Institute, and holds a joint appointment as an Assistant Professor with SingHealth Duke-NUS Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences Academic Clinical Programme (EYE ACP). He also serves as an Adjunct Scientist at the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Basel, Switzerland.
Dr Wong has been generally interested in exploring the use of computer vision, data science and artificial intelligence-driven techniques in healthcare with a focus in ophthalmology. He has been actively involved in developing approaches to better detect image-based biomarkers in eye diseases such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration. He has also explored the use of eye-tracking for visual function analysis and rehabilitation. Beyond ophthalmology, he has also worked with medical images in the fields of dermatology, cardiology, and chronic wound care.
Currently, his research revolves around the use of structural and vascular imaging for visual function modelling in neurodegenerative conditions. He is also particularly interested in the application of artificial intelligence-driven techniques for the modelling and characterisation of vision-threatening conditions from ophthalmic images.
