Abstract

Globally, the number of people of all ages visually impaired is estimated to be 285 million. Almost half of these visual impairments require surgical intervention by means of treatment. The current paper proposes a theoretical research strategy to set the background on developing innovative and affordable solutions to the global problem of accessibility to ophthalmological corrective surgeries. These solutions are reflected both in the application of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies to obtain bespoke ophthalmic surgical instruments and in providing a set of software tools designed to assist the medical process for improved overall results.
