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.

BREAKTROUGH! Successful threatment with the femto-laser

We are happy to announce that the research team lead by Dr. Tassignon has made a major breakthrough regarding treatment for floaters using the femto-laser.

On 15.09.2017 it was confirmed at Ghent University that it is possible to treat vitreous floaters in vitro using the femtosecond laser. They now know which type of laser wavelength works best.

EFRO will update our website very soon with more details.
