Research interests

Dr. Prager’s research focus is the non-invasive evaluation of the visual system through ultrasonograpy and electrophysiology. He holds a patent for an immersion biometry shell for accurate ocular measurements prior to cataract surgery, a device that has become a standard of care and is used in 39 countries. Dr. Prager’s most recent invention, the Clear Scan Cover, was created to simplify examinations of the anterior segment of the eye, and to facilitate the clinical use of ultrasonography.
