My Biography & Research

Biography

Dr. Han’s clinical and research career is dedicated to improving the visual outcomes of children with chronic non-infectious uveitis by decreasing vision loss and blindness in this population. Her research efforts focus on identifying novel risk factors for severe refractory uveitis, with a special interest in race and biomarkers, and developing a comprehensive outcomes assessment protocol for pediatric inflammatory eye disease. She also has experience in questionnaire development and validated the first measure of vision-related quality of life and function for pediatric uveitis, the “Effects of Youngsters' Eyesight on Quality of Life” (EYE-Q).
