May 30, 2012 (Chengdu) After my presentation on orbital trauma early on Wednesday, one of the drug reps chauffered me to the SPPH Animal Research Facility. This includes a very large monkey colony in addition to many rodent models of eye disease. The monkeys are bred and domesticated and cared for diligently. Most of their research is currently done in glaucoma, and these monkeys are even trained to sit at the slit lamp and have their IOP taken. It was an impressive facility. On the way there, we passed by one of the largest construction projects any of us have seen. We're still trying to figure out what it is, but rumor has it it is a new Apple manufacturing facility here in Chengdu. More research to be done on that.
