Geisler’s primary research interests are in vision, computational vision, and visual neuroscience. His research combines behavioral studies, neurophysiological studies, studies of natural stimuli, and mathematical analysis.   Current research is directed at how to perform perceptual tasks optimally (the “theory of ideal observers”), on the relationship between the statistical properties of natural stimuli and the performance of the visual system, on the properties and theory of eye movements in natural tasks, and on the relationship between visual performance and the neurophysiology of the visual system.
