Dry Eyes

A breakthrough method for non-invasive analysis of dry eye disease

A significant number of individuals are affected moderately to severely by dry eyes. Consequences are discomfort, pain, limited vision and reduction of the quality of life. Despite this, no effective diagnostic technique is available. Our team of four physicists and an ophthalmologist is working on developing a diagnostic method based on the evaporation of tear fluid, aiming to commercialise a simple device that is usable by any optician and general practitioner.
