Three Year funding of $565,764 AUD will be provided to Dr Alonso-Caneiro and his research colleagues for their innovative research project titled ‘Predicting Visual Function from Structural Data in Health and Ocular Disease’.
Dr Alonso-Caneiro was excited to explain, “Our research project objective is to understand vision loss in normal aging and in a major eye disease, such as glaucoma. We will apply a vision loss model to anatomical eye data using Artificial Intelligence (AI). It is our belief that we can develop an AI machine learning application that will be able to successfully predict visual perception and function. A tool that will make clinical practice more efficient and effective.”
