Create a research network where a group of talented ESRs can train, work together and exchange ideas with European experts on topics related to visual optics and biomechanics.
Improve fundamental knowledge on unsolved topics of visual optics and biomechanics.
Create the opto-biomechanical model as a platform for future analyses.
Expand this platform to incorporate the influences of ageing, accommodation, select pathologies (e.g. keratoconus), and responses to therapies (e.g. cross-linking, refractive surgery, intraocular lens implantation, etc.).
Develop innovative applications in corneal and cataract surgery, highlighting the platform’s strength.
Ensure that Europe cements its place as a world leader and pioneer in the field of visual optics and eye modelling.
