The Science and Technology Week organized by CSIC is the most important scientific outreach initiative in Spain. It is organized every year over two weeks with the objective of bringing science closer to the public. The activity carried out by IMCUSTOMEYE was the conference “IMCUSTOMEYE: A new paradigm in the diagnosis of ocular diseases through corneal biomechanics” by Judith Birkenfeld (PhD) and Fernando Zvietcovich (PhD) on November 2022 at the Institute of Optics CSIC (Madrid, Spain).
We also held an open doors day to bring the public into direct contact with the project. During this day IMCUSTOMEYE researchers organized two visits to our laboratories at the Institute of Optics (CSIC, Spain). The attendees included people of a wide range of ages, from older people to college students and children. The attendees followed the steps that a patient would follow in an IMCUSTOMEYE study at the VioBio Lab, showing them different devices like an Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) system. The lab tours were designed to show also different dissemination tools developed throughout the project like the latest IMCUSTOMEYE video and flyer.
