OPTIMA - Christian Doppler Laboratory on Ophtalmic Image Analysis. funded by the Christian Doppler Gesellschaft. The OPTIMA project aims at individualizing patient management and at lowering treatment and monitoring needs in ophtalmic diseases to make the most effective ocular treatment available to all patients and physicians. We are conducting methodological research on big spatio-temporal data analysis.
