Jay Neitz


Jay Neitz is a vision researcher and professor of ophthalmology at the University of Washington in Seattle. At the Neitz Lab, he explores color vision in primates to better understand the visual system and develop gene therapies for human vision problems, including color-blindness, macular degeneration, and nearsightedness. His research that allowed color-blind monkeys to perceive red and green was hailed as one of the top ten scientific discoveries of 2009 by TIME magazine and suggested that it may be possible to enhance sight in already healthy individuals. He received his Ph.D. in biopsychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
