Non-mydriatic ocular fundus photography in the emergency department: how it can benefit neurologists


Beau Benjamin Bruce, MD, PhD is Adjunct Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology, Neurology, and Epidemiology at Emory University. His research is focused on the use of non-mydriatic fundus photography for the diagnosis of ocular findings relevant to the care of patients with acute neurologic and systemic medical conditions and the epidemiology of idiopathic intracranial hypertension.

Dr. Bruce has worked as the Analytics Lead for the Enteric Diseases Epidemiology Branch in the Division of Foodborne, Waterborne, and Environmental Diseases within the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention since 2016, but continues to support the research of Emory’s Neuro-Ophthalmology Unit with his neuro-ophthalmic, epidemiological, and statistical expertise.
