Proteomics approaches are employed to study three important eye diseases, namely mycotic keratitis, diabetic retinopathy and primary open angle glaucoma. Recently, DBT has awarded a Programme support for research on human mycotic keratitis to understand the pathogenesis and to identify potential candidates that can be used as biomarkers for early diagnosis and prognosis leading to better and effective management of the disease.
