The Research Department of the Athens Eye Hospital has initianited a new project supported by Velux Foundation (Velux Stiftung, Switzerland). The project PeriVIQA pertains to the systematic modelling, measurement and analysis of peripheral image quality in pseudophakic eyes. More information on the project’s page.
Dr. Dimitrios Christaras from the Research Department of the Athens Eye Hospital received the prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship. He will be funded for two years to develop, under the supervision of Dr. Harilaos Ginis, an instrument for fast assessment of peripheral refractive errors and image quality. The project with the acronym IRWAVE will also involve Prof. Linda Lundstrom from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and Prof. Christos Bergeles from King’s College London.
The Research Department of the Athens Eye Hospital along with the Laboratorio de Optica, Universidad de Murcia, joined forces for a H2020 funded project on the development of a portable instrument for the measurement of the optical density of Macular Pigment. The project was chosen by the Attract call along with 170 breakthrough ideas from all over Europe. More on the project here. A short video with an overview of our project, explained by the Head of Department Dr. Harilaos Ginis can been seen below.
