JEFFREY GOLDBERG, MD, PHD, the Blumenkranz Smead Professor and chair of Ophthalmology at the Stanford School of Medicine, is the latest guest on the highly acclaimed Huberman podcast, hosted by renowned neuroscientist and Stanford faculty Andrew Huberman, PhD.

During the episode, released June 26, 2023, Drs. Goldberg and Huberman talked about what we should all do — from childhood through early adulthood and as we age — to best preserve and even improve our vision. Dr. Goldberg also discussed his groundbreaking research on regeneration in the eye and optic nerve and offered sneak peeks into exciting new initiatives at the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford in some of the most common and most debilitating diseases.

As a leading expert in his field, Dr. Goldberg’s work has significantly advanced our understanding of glaucoma and has the potential to revolutionize treatment options for the disease, which is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide.

By shedding light on the mechanisms underlying glaucoma, Dr. Goldberg's work has paved the way for novel therapies and potential breakthroughs in vision restoration
