Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project with Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
Students will become familiar with modern refractive surgery.
We assess the impact of refractive surgery on a series of factors: quality of life, on ectatic disorders, and the overall visual rehabilitation. Refractive errors have major impact on the quality of life since they introduce limitations on a series of vision specific activities among them driving, swimming and sports activities. It becomes obvious that refractive errors pose limitations on a series of dimensions (i.e. social, marital, educational and recreational). Therefore our research efforts aim on the excellence of refractive surgery techniques and their impact on human life as a whole.

The aim of the project is the impact of modern refractive surgery on the quality of life of the patient. Lectures, observations and patient
