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.
