The global costs from visual refractive errors will reach some €1.2 trillion in 2019. This type of disability is on the increase and it is predicted that it will affect 10% of the World population by 2050. Pathological corneal shape deformations (PCSD) are a common cause of severe refractive error that tend to occur in young adults, considerably reducing both their quality of life and work productivity. Current treatment options are severely limited. The compromised cornea cannot withstand aggressive reductive laser surgery. Corneal transplantation gives highly unpredictable results, necessitating multiple operations that lead to spiraling treatment costs of over €14k per patient.
HUMANEYE is a breakthrough dome-shaped corneal net fashioned in medical-grade titanium. Implanted deep within the cornea, it potently corrects refractive error and halts disease progression in PCSD. It uniquely matches the natural architecture of tissue layers throughout the entire tissue, leading to simple reproducible implantation, 70% higher success rates and 66% stronger refractive correction than current ring-shaped implants on the market today.
The HUMANeye project unites two hi-tech SMEs, to manufacture the technology and push it to market, with two leading European ophthalmic care centres to prove its worth in the clinic. From HUMANEYE launch in 2023 until 2027, our SME partners will together generate €103.6m in cumulative revenues and €54.9m in profits. Rollout with an established commercial license partner will generate 21 internal and 48 external jobs in our value chain. 938k successfully operations will help 295k patients to better employment and save €20.1bn in direct public healthcare and indirect productivity costs.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "HUMANEYE" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
