The following are examples of projects supported by CORONIS FOUNDATION.
Research on Corneal Nerves
The clear part of the ocular surface, the cornea, is the window of the eye and the first optical element involved in the quality of vision and visual health. In recent years the essential role of corneal nerves in ocular surface disease has become the focus of intensive research. CORONIS FOUNDATION is supporting this research at the Institute of Neurosciences of the University Miguel Hernández in Alicante, Spain.
