Project "Eyemovie": Motion Visualization of Eye Defects

The simulation environment, the project Eyemovie was created in, offers an objective way to actually see how various eye defects affect the visual perception of a patient. It is incomparably more instructive than having the patient describe and explain what he perceives. Aside from being an ideal educational tool the simulation environment represents a highly versatile scientific investigational tool to simulate before and after scenarios as they occur in, e. g., cataract and refractive laser surgery. Given a more advanced eye model adjustable to individually measured biometric and topographic real eye data, much more realistic simulations may be performed: effects of refractive laser surgery techniques, tear film distortions (dry eyes), multi-focal IOLs, etc.
