The University of Liverpool, member of the IMCUSTOMEYE consortium, has published a press release on the project in its research section. The article highlights the role of the University’s Biomechanical Engineering Group in the development of new imaging techniques to diagnose and treat corneal diseases and glaucoma in a personalised manner.
Professor Ahmed Elsheikh, head of the research group, explains that “despite the fact that these treatments, and the conditions they help with, interact or interfere mechanically with the cornea, there is currently no method to accurately measure corneal biomechanical properties in vivo. Such a method would be essential for customising these treatments for individual patients’ needs and ultimately improving their clinical outcomes. The IMCUSTOMEYE project is intended to address this need,”
