WELCOME TO POPCORN PROJECT

System based on 3D plenoptic imaging for dynamic topographical corneal characterization

WHAT IS POPCORN

The main objective of the POPCORN project is to develop a non- invasive and accurate corneal system for characterizing corneal biomechanics and predicting mechanical changes of the corneal structures after different types of changes. This system will be based on a new technology that will generate a personalized and in-vivo biomechanical model of the patient’s cornea.

WHO ARE POPCORN

The POPCORN project includes 7 partners from 3 different European countries, including small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and Research Technological Developers (RTD). This forms a consistent consortium coordinated by OFTALMAR (Alicante, Spain).The consortium has agreed an IPR model ownership in which the owners of the results are the SMEs members of the consortium.
