Scientific Overview

Ophthalmology has become increasingly subspecialized and technologically advanced, making it impossible to be an expert in every area and highlighting the need for multi-disciplinary collaborations with engineers and mathematicians. The goal of this workshop is to encourage communication between engineers, mathematicians, scientists, and clinicians to improve patient care and scientific advancement.

The integration of new imaging technology allows visualization down to the cellular level, but objectivity of evaluation and automated analysis still need more refinement. The incorporation of intra-operative imaging technology would be the beginning of a new surgical era in ophthalmology. Robotics in ophthalmic surgery is also on the horizon. It would reduce human error, improve precision, and increase surgical capabilities.
