Bascom Palmer Eye Institute

Technology Laboratory Research

The ophthalmic technologies program applies engineering principles and techniques to the development of new devices, systems or algorithms for the study, treatment and diagnosis of eye diseases. This field covers an array of disciplines, including medical instrumentation, medical imaging, image processing, physiological signal processing, medical optics, nanotechnology, biomechanics, biomaterials and bioengineering and implants. Examples of concrete applications are the development and manufacture of biocompatible prostheses, surgical instruments, diagnostic devices and imaging equipment, and drug delivery devices.

Investigators with entries in the Training Program Affiliation column are faculty members in the university’s biomedical engineering training programs (BME) or the department’s clinical ophthalmology training programs.
