AMD Age-related Macular Degeneration
Thanks to Inria’s expertise in the field of visual sciences andsupport from renowned experts from the medical domain(Professor Stéphanie BAILLIF from Nice Pasteur University Hospital) and the psychophysics domain(Doctor Eric CASTET – Dr CNRS, AMU),Inria is proposing two research and development projects which will build the foundation for new solutions for patients.
These two projects focus on diagnosis and visual aid with a common point: reading. Reading is one of the major needs for patients suffering from AMD. Loss of reading leads to frustration, anxiety, restlessness and can have a significant psychological and cognitive impact.
SUMMARY TECHNICAL FEATURES OF THE PROJECT
The projects are supported by Professors Stéphanie BAILLIF Head of ophthalmology at Nice University Hospital (Hôpital Pasteur)
The added value of these two projects lies:
- In their potential to deliver concrete solutions for patients suffering from AMD
- In their possible impact on other sectors of activity, going beyond the scope of visual impairment
