Corneal and Ocular Surface

Corneal and Ocular Surface research focuses on the refinement of techniques in corneal collagen cross linking, including using artificial intelligence to assist in creating customised treatment profile for individual patients. Research also aims to assess novel therapeutic substances for disorders of the ocular surface and tear film.

Our researchers aim to develop new diagnostic tools and applications with particular emphasis on corneal hysteresis.

In addition to this, research will focus on assessing new intraocular lens designs for enhanced cataract surgery outcomes.
