An update from Dr Tassignon

Is there any news, Dr Tassignon?

– It is evident that the knowledge of the posterior interface improved dramatically thanks to the more performant OCT devices.Still much needs to be discovered, but we do have progress.  I met with the group from Ghent University recently. It was decided to submit a new approach of laser combined treatment. I cannot tell you more so far.

Is it still important for you to get funding from third parties? 

– I think that money will be highly appreciated. Ghent and Antwerp would like to collaborate further on a device that can measure the biomechanical properties of the vitreous body. Theze parameters will be very helpful to better understand different ocular pathologies, including postoperative retinal detachments.
