Vision Research

Vision Research has to become a top priority on the agenda of all decision makers in Europe!

An impairment of vision or even complete blindness has a debilitating impact on the quality of life of the affected person, their relatives and friends and to the economic and social systems as a whole. This factor stimulated many European countries to dedicate resources to investigate the visual system and the underlying processes. Hence, the current social and economic developments and requirements in Europe necessitate for a better support, coordination and orientation of research in the field of visual sciences.

Key steps are a better integration of basic, clinical and applied research efforts, a clear definition of policies and guidelines, an efficient collaboration between the public and private sector together with a substantial increase of information and knowledge transfer activities.
