The Ophthalmic Technology Group is dedicated to the development of innovative surgical and diagnostic instruments and techniques in the area of ophthalmology. The novel engineering solutions should allow for an increased surgical precision, while at the same time diminish the risks for patients and reduce the costs for the intervention. We are focused on projects that are clinically relevant and we are committed to advance the project development to a state were a potential clinical benefit can be assessed. The successful combination of applied research and development on one side and clinical implementation on the other represents the main challenge of our group.
The Ophthalmic Technology Group consists of a multi-disciplinary team of engineers and clinicians. Our core competencies are in mechatronic systems design, signal processing, computer vision and computer graphics.
