Doctor Marta Pazos is an MD, PhD, Ophthalmologist, Glaucoma Specialist. She earned her Medicine and Surgery degree at the Universitat de Barcelona, subsequently specialising in ophthalmology at Hospital de l’Esperança-Parc de Salut Mar in Barcelona. After passing her medical licence exams to practise in the United States, she was granted an official clinical and surgical fellowship, with a sub-specialisation in glaucoma, at the Devers Eye Institute of Portland, where she also carried out a basic research project into imaging techniques and reconstruction of the optic nerve in experimental glaucoma. Since then she's worked in close collaboration with the Optic Nerve Head Research Laboratory at the same centre, a project that formed the basis of her doctoral thesis at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, which obtained the grading of Excellent Cum Laude. Her particular fields of research interest are based fundamentally on the histomorphometry of the optic nerve and its imaging techniques.
Doctor Pazos specialises in diagnosing and monitoring glaucoma, as well as its medical, laser and surgical treatment. Over the last few years she's published widely in international journals and has taken part in national and international congresses. She also often reviews a range of scientific publications.
She's a member of the American Glaucoma Society, the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology and the Spanish Glaucoma Society.
