Dr. Ogawa, an Eye Associates physician specializing in cornea, was one of five physicians who co-authored a journal article entitiled: Beauveria Keratitis and Biopesticides: Case Histories and a Random Amplification of Polymorphic DNA Comparison study. It was published in Cornea, The Journal of Cornea and External Disease, Volume 29, #2, February 2010.
The purposes of the study were to describe two contact lens-associated Beauveria Keratitis cases and to compare the isolates of three contact lens-associated Beauveria Keratitis cases with Beauveria-based Biopesticides using random amplification of polymorphic DNA (RAPD). The results showed that the cases of Beauveria Keratitis were caused by strains of Beauveria that were genetically distinct from that found in the Biopesticides.
Dr. Ogawa has been with Eye Associates since 1998 and served as Medical Chief Officer for a number of years and we are proud to have him as an intregal part of our Anterior Segment Department.
