Prof. Jan E.E. Keunen conducts research on possible new treatments of age-related macula degeneration. This disease is the major cause of poor eyesight and blindness among elderly people in the western world.

Furthermore, Keunen specializes in the treatment of eye tumours and in laser surgery on the diseased eye. The Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre was the first medical centre in the Netherlands to introduce such state-of-the-art technology as the microsecond laser (2007) and pattern scan laser (2008).

Prof. Keunen is chairman of the WHO Task Force Vision 2020 Netherlands, which is working hard on reducing avoidable blindness and low vision in the Netherlands. He is also co-chair for Europe of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, which implements cost-effective eye disease prevention projects in Europe.
