Dr. Glasser is originally from Johannesburg, South Africa. After moving to the United States in 1986, he completed a B.S. degree in biology and then an M.S. degree in neurobiology at the State University of New York at Albany in 1990. Dr. Glasser obtained a Ph.D. degree in physiology under Howard Howland, Ph.D. from Cornell University Ithaca, N.Y. in 1994 studying the mechanism of accommodation in the avian eye. Following that, Dr. Glasser completed a first postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of Waterloo School of Optometry with Melanie Campbell, Ph.D. studying optics, accommodation and aging of the human lens. Following that, Dr. Glasser completed a second postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with Paul Kaufman, M.D studying ciliary muscle function in relation to accommodation and presbyopia in non-human primates. Dr. Glasser is actively pursuing federally funded and industry funded research on the physiology and optics of accommodation and presbyopia.
