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.
Treatment of Corneal Blindness in North Africa
CORONIS FOUNDATION is supporting the establishment of new treatment modalities for corneal-related blindness at the Hôpital Cheikh Zaïd in Rabat, Morocco

CORONIS FOUNDATION organizes symposia on the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of ocular surface disease with global access free-of-charge.
