Photonic technologies have revolutioned vision research, which has experience a fast and exciting progress. The new methods to study and characterize the different segments of the eye and the ocular biomechanics have found important applications, such as the control and correction of myopia. The development of customized lenses and IOL has demanded new fabrication and characterization processes. And, last but no least, there is a growing interest in the use of coherent light sources to enhance the properties of some of the segment of the eye and the treatment of common diseases in the retina.
In this meeting we will cover the emerging photonics technologies in this field and we will also understand the evolution of the existing techniques to cover the demands of the new applications. Imaging technologies and devices (OCT, OCE, multiphoton microscopy…), novel lasers and light sources, visual simulators, spectroscopic characterization techniques… will be discussed with experts from the whole supply chain.
