A closer look at the eye’s optomechanical changes
The eye is a biological tissue with optical and biomedical qualities that are interdependent and characterised by impressive flexibility. These qualities are subject to alterations caused by ageing and pathology. However, the origin of these biomechanical alterations and how these affect the optics of the eye are not sufficiently understood. The EU-funded OBERON project proposes the first European interdisciplinary collaboration between scientists of optics and biomechanics of the eye, aiming to increase our understanding of the interrelationship between ocular optics and biomechanics. The consortium will train young researchers in ocular optomechanics, allowing them to share learning experiences and take advantage of placements at universities, hospitals and industry. The training will provide them with innovative skill sets to convert their research into scientific, industrial or clinical applications with broad potential.
