ARREST BLINDNESS is a consortium performing a four-year research project funded by the HORIZON 2020 program of the European Commission. Within the project we are developing and validating advanced regenerative and restorative therapies to treat the loss of corneal transparancy so that it does not result in blindness.
The cornea is the most anteriorly located ocular tissue, serving principally as a transparent window for light to enter the human eye. Besides the function of transparency, the curved cornea serves to refract light to deeper ocular structures, and presents a biological barrier to the outer environment.
