Welcome to the Visual Optics and Biophotonics lab website at the Instituto de Optica, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, Madrid, Spain.  

The goal of our laboratory is the development of imaging techniques for investigation of the human visual system, and the development of new vision correction alternatives. We  have applied this technology specifically to:

      1. The understanding of the imaging mechanisms of the optical system of the eye (cornea and crystalline lens)

      2. Advance of the understanding of the biological mechanisms and early diagnosis of ocular pathologies.

      3. Evaluation and new designs of refractive and presbyopic corrections.

Presbyopia ERC project - Susana Marcos from Visual Optics and Biophotonics on Vimeo.

The Presbyopia project proposes new alternatives to treat presbyopia, an ocular condition affecting people from 45 years of age, including multifocal corrections and accommodating intraocular lenses.
The team will study the ability of the optical and neural contributions to the performance of new corrections of presbyopia. In particular, the project addresses the eye's crystalline lens ability to change its shape to focus on near and far objects (i.e. its accommodation), with the aim of  developing bio-inspired intraocular lenses that can mimic the dynamic and continuous focusing ability of the eye.
