Imaging and simulations for Opto-Mechanics of the eye


In my talk I would like to share:


1. How the mechanics of the cornea plays an important role in quality of
image formed on the retina. This section talks about use of photomechanics
to determine the stress due to physiological forces in eye and
corresponding change in the optical quality of cornea.


2. How finite element simulation is helping us in designing better clinical
interventions and optimizing surgery. This section will touch the use of
finite element modeling in simulating penetrating keratoplasty and
learnings derived out of it.


3. How new imaging capabilities while helping us see things in more details
are also posing new challenges to us. This section will cover the
development of Adaptive Optics Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope and how it has
helped to improve on imaging capabilities. This section will also cover the
new challenges that have been identified by the use of this technology.


4. Lastly, I would like to close with the aims and challenges of the rural
eye health and the need of technology building in this area. I would like
to briefly discuss about the challenge we have picked under the ongoing
collaboration between LVPEI, IIT-H, and UBC.
