Project description

English EN

Presurgical decision support offers benefits that are easy to see

Myopia is the most common ocular disorder. Its global incidence is increasing rapidly, particularly among youth. Around half of the young adults in the US and Europe are short-sighted and the numbers are rising. The underlying defect is a slightly elongated eyeball. In severe cases, it can lead to serious consequences including retinal detachment, cataracts, glaucoma, and even blindness. Refractive surgery (to correct the improper bending of light through the lens) has become a very common and relatively simple treatment. Now, the EU-funded VEMoS project is providing sophisticated pre-surgical support with patented state-of-the-art diagnostics and advanced simulation software to predict post-surgery outcomes. The decision-making tool should enhance outcomes while reducing the risk of complications, helping millions of people worldwide to see more clearly.
