The Spanish European Office has launched a press release featuring the ERC Proof-of-Concept call coordinator’s visit to the Visual Optics and Biophotonics Lab. Researchers had the opportunity to discuss the advances of their ERC PoC OCT4IOL project, advancing on the commercialization of technologies to optimize IOL selection.

Members of VioBio Lab and collaborators have founded a new spin-off company, 2Eyes Vision, to commercialize the SimVis technology developed in the group, protected by several patents. A working prototype simulating multifocal corrections has been demonstrated with great success to key opinion leaders in several clinical and scientific conferences. The group is now working on an even more miniaturized binocular device. Further advances will be communicated.
Single neural code for blur in subjects with different interocular optical blur orientation published in Journal of Vision
We studied the ability of the visual system to compensate for differences in blur orientation. Subjects selected the better image from pairs of images blurred with similar blur magnitude but different blur orientation, to generate positive and negative neural PSFs. We found that in subjects with similar and with different ocular PSF orientations between eyes, the orientation of the neural positive PSF was closer to the orientation of the ocular PSF of the eye with the better optical quality (average difference was ∼10°), while the orientation of the positive and negative neural PSFs tended to be orthogonal. These results suggest a single internal code for blur with orientation driven by the orientation of the optical blur of the eye with better optical quality.
The results have been published in June 2015 issue of the Journal of Vision. Full reference: Aiswaryah Radhakrishnan; Lucie Sawides; Carlos Dorronsoro; Eli Peli; Susana Marcos.
