Marie Curie fellows at OPTOM 16 conference, 8-10 April 2016

Between the 8th and 10th April 2016, Izabela Garaszczuk (ESR 1), Laura Rico del Viejo (ESR 2), Clara Llorens Quintana (ESR 3) and Edouard Lafosse (ESR 4) attended the 24th International Congress of Optometry, Contactology and Ophthalmic Optics (OPTOM) 2016 in Madrid, to present their work to international eye care professionals and researchers in vision science.

Two oral presentations were given in Spanish. Edouard Lafosse (ESR 4) gave a professional lecture about “Noninvasive techniques for tear meniscus morphology evaluation” and Laura Rico del Viejo (ESR 2) presented her interesting her work on “The intra-examiner reliability of tear film stability assesssment in symptomatic wearers of  new-generation contact lenses” as a poster presentation.


The congress was also an opportunity for the ESRs to meet and establish the co-operation with other Marie Curie fellows from the Ageye project, which was founded by the 7th EU framework programme. As a part of such co-operation with Alejandra Consejo Vaquero from Ageye, Clara Llorens Quintana (ESR 3) presented their work on “Repeatability and agreement of corneal refractive power measurements with a new corneo-scleral topographer – Eye Surface Profiler”.

Izabela Garaszczuk (ESR 1) presented her award-winning project on “Tear Turnover Rate assessment with Fourier transform profilometry and optical coherence tomography”.
