ERC Advanced Grant awarded to Susana Marcos

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.
