Consulting in Corneal Biomechanics, Numerical Simulations, and Corneal Topography

The Optimeyes team of Optimo Medical AG has many years of experience in corneal biomechanics, numerical simulation (FEM), and corneal topography. We have published a number of papers, and have given many talks (also invited) in the field at international conferences. We are capable of providing senior level consulting services for surgeons, R&D engineers, and product managers.

Corneal Topography

OptimeyesTM provides all sort of corneal maps to the user. Some of them are included in our CE marked product (Optimeyes), many are not (e.g. principal curvature maps based on differential geometry). We have put in many years of research and development into our map representations and data displays. Besides a comprehensive corneal topography toolbox, this has given us the expertise we need to provide senior level consulting service in corneal topography.

Corneal Biomechanics and numerical simulations

Corneal biomechanics, a long neglected aspect in cataract and refractive surgery, has gained popularity over the last decade. Harald Studer has been part of a small group of international experts, constantly pushing hard to raise the awareness of the importance of biomechanics. He is now an accepted expert in the field, with may paper pubcliations and presentations at international conferences such as the ESCRS, ARVO, AAP, ASCRS, and APAO. 

We have developed a comprehensive simulation framework for corneal biomechanics. This framework enables us to simulate any type of physical interference with the cornea. A few examples of this rich catalog are given here:

Many more applications are possible. Please also have a look into our innovation section, where novel simulation capabilities can be explored. If you are struggling with corneal biomechanical effects, or have open questions regarding corneal topography, please do not hesitate to contact us anytime (contact us).
