Vision Improvement through CATaracts by wavefront shaping

Project description

Improving vision of people with cataracts

Cataracts impair people’s vision by blurring retinal images and reducing their contrast. The current treatment is cataract surgery, an invasive procedure which, although quite successful, may have side effects such as corneal edema, infection and retinal detachment. As a possible alternative, the EU-funded VICAT project proposes a non-invasive approach to improve vision of cataract patients. This approach is based on the manipulation of the light wavefront incident on the eye. This may be ultimately integrated into head-mounted devices. This project will lay the groundwork for effective practical vision correction for cataract patients.
