CD6 participates in the XXXII Congress of the ESCRS

CD6 researchers participated in the V Congress of the European Society of Cornea and Ocular Surface (EuCornea) and XXXII Congress of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) presenting the results of recent studies conducted in field of vision. This last convention, one of the most important in Europe, was held from 13th to 17th September in London (England).

Juan Carlos Ondategui presented a poster in the EuCornea in collaboration with the Ocular Microsurgery Institute (IMO) in Barcelona. This work is focused on evaluating the optical quality of different corneal diseases. The novelty of this paper is based on the capability of objective detection of several cornel lesions, showing a significant limitation of the ocular optical quality. Moreover, in the ESCRS J.C. Ondategui gave an oral presentation about a second work in conjunction with IMO which showed the first results of the analysis of the ocular optical quality in patients suffering from ocular hypertension or primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). Traditionally there are no symptoms associated with POAG and by the time the vision is impaired, the damage is irreversible. The novelty of this work is that glaucoma shows significant alterations in the ocular optical quality at different stages of the disease.

Mikel Aldaba presented a poster with the work done in the development of a new multifocal intraocular lens in cooperation with the Dutch company Ophtec. The novelty of this work is the use of the instrument VirtIOL, manufactured by 10 Lens SLU (a start-up company of CD6), which allows in vivo evaluation of the lens prior to surgery. The lens resulting from the collaboration between CD6 and the Ophtec company has the distinction of improving the intermediate vision in front of other multifocal lenses.
