Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Surgery

Sheila K. West mainly investigates Eye disease, Visual acuity, Ophthalmology, Risk factor and Surgery. Her Eye disease research focuses on subjects like Confidence interval, which are linked to Cataract surgery. Her Visual acuity research integrates issues from Audiology, Contrast, Optometry, Visual impairment and Glaucoma.

Her research in Risk factor intersects with topics in Odds ratio, Cohort study, Epidemiology and Gerontology. Her Epidemiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Medical history, Pediatrics and Trachoma. Her Surgery study which covers Internal medicine that intersects with Azithromycin and Chlamydia trachomatis.

Her most cited work include:

  • Global Prevalence and Major Risk Factors of Diabetic Retinopathy (2265 citations)
  • Global Causes of Blindness and Distance Vision Impairment 1990-2020: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis (1012 citations)
  • Magnitude, temporal trends, and projections of the global prevalence of blindness and distance and near vision impairment: a systematic review and meta-analysis (930 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her primary areas of investigation include Trachoma, Optometry, Ophthalmology, Surgery and Azithromycin. Her work carried out in the field of Trachoma brings together such families of science as Internal medicine, Chlamydia trachomatis, Immunology and Environmental health. Her Optometry research incorporates themes from Cross-sectional study, Refractive error, Visual acuity and Glaucoma.

The various areas that Sheila K. West examines in her Visual acuity study include Visual impairment, Diabetic retinopathy, Audiology and Contrast. Her Eye disease, Stargardt disease and Macular degeneration study are her primary interests in Ophthalmology. As part of one scientific family, Sheila K. West deals mainly with the area of Surgery, narrowing it down to issues related to the Risk factor, and often Odds ratio.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Trachoma (34.20%)
  • Optometry (18.32%)
  • Ophthalmology (16.49%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Trachoma (34.20%)
  • Glaucoma (11.60%)
  • Azithromycin (13.74%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Sheila K. West mainly focuses on Trachoma, Glaucoma, Azithromycin, Ophthalmology and Internal medicine. The concepts of her Trachoma study are interwoven with issues in Mass drug administration, Chlamydia trachomatis, Surgery and Environmental health. Her studies in Glaucoma integrate themes in fields like Optometry, Visual field, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Confidence interval.

Her Azithromycin research includes themes of Clinical trial, Randomized controlled trial, Disease cluster, Placebo and Child mortality. Sheila K. West works mostly in the field of Internal medicine, limiting it down to topics relating to Chlamydia and, in certain cases, Distribution, as a part of the same area of interest. As a part of the same scientific family, Sheila K. West mostly works in the field of Visual acuity, focusing on Visual impairment and, on occasion, Global health.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Global Causes of Blindness and Distance Vision Impairment 1990-2020: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis (1012 citations)
  • Magnitude, temporal trends, and projections of the global prevalence of blindness and distance and near vision impairment: a systematic review and meta-analysis (930 citations)
  • Azithromycin to Reduce Childhood Mortality in Sub-Saharan Africa (148 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Ophthalmology

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Visual acuity, Stargardt disease, Trachoma, Azithromycin and Prospective cohort study. Her Visual acuity study incorporates themes from Diabetic retinopathy, Macular degeneration, Optometry, Generalized estimating equation and Visual impairment. Her Stargardt disease study improves the overall literature in Ophthalmology.

Her work deals with themes such as Mass drug administration, Internal medicine, Chlamydia trachomatis and Surgery, which intersect with Trachoma. Her studies deal with areas such as Chlamydia and Lower risk as well as Surgery. Her Prospective cohort study research incorporates elements of Cohort study and Glaucoma.
