Hearing and Vision

Hearing loss is the most common injury resulting from modern warfare. Eye injury and other visual disorders are similarly widespread. The Center for Military and Post Deployment Health aims to coordinate and enhance BU-related research and clinical care efforts related to hearing and vision impairments.

BU-affiliated centers, institutes, and labs involved in hearing and vision research, education, and clinical work include:

Boston University Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery

Boston University Sargent College Neural Prosthesis Lab

Boston University School of Engineering Department of Biomedical Engineering Hearing Research Center

Boston University Vision Research Core
