Track 1: The Visual System and the Eye

The eyes together with their connecting pathways to the brain form the visual system. It detects and interprets information from visible light to build a representation of the surrounding environment. In the eye, the cornea bends light rays and is primarily responsible for focusing the image on the retina. The lens behind the cornea inverts the image top to bottom and right to left. The retina, a sensory surface inside the back of the eye, is the structure that translates light into nerve signals, and enables us to see under conditions that range from dark to sunlight, discriminate colours, and provide a high degree of visual precision. Most projections from the retina travel via the optic nerve to a part of the thalamus called the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN), deep in the centre of the brain.

Track 2: Vision and Cognition

The visual system is beautifully crafted to transmit information of the external world to visual processing and cognitive centres in the brain. The basis of cognition is the brain’s ability to synchronize all the electrical activity it is constantly receiving and generating. Deriving meaningful information from visual data almost certainly relies on cognition. Basic vision processes such as focusing and tracking eye movements are prerequisites to the ability to take information into the visual system for higher-level processing. The visual system does not work alone and vision therapy can be most effective when it incorporates cognitive skills development in the systems most integrated with the visual system, including attention, memory, and even auditory processing.

Track 3: Visual Neuroscience

Visual Neuroscience focuses on Visual system of human brain mainly the visual cortex of the brain. The aim is to understand functioning of the visual neural network and how it influences visual perception and behaviour. It mainly focuses on how eyes and brain responds to light, how perception of images happen in the brain and how mind recreates the world like reality as it really is.

Track 4: Visual Perception

Vision is a biological process and the human organism's phylogenetic capacity for seeing, a social, political and cultural phenomenon which is continually undergoing transformations throughout history and in relation to different social and cultural environments. Accordingly if we are to better understand the diverse ways of seeing encountered around the world then we must consider the relationship between the eye, brain and body in relation to language, the imagination and culture; consider how different visual practices are embodied, naturalised and articulated within different times and places; and how acts of looking not only shape the relations between persons but structure the way they encounter and understand the world and finally how culture shapes our visions.

Track 5: Computer Vision

Humans use their eyes and their brains to see and visually sense the world around them. Computer vision is the science that aims to do a similar job by a machine or computer. Computer vision is concerned with the automatic extraction, analysis and understanding of visual information from a single image or a sequence of images. It involves the development of a theoretical and algorithmic basis and deep knowledge on human visual system to achieve automatic visual understanding.

Track 8: Visual Memory

Visual Memory is the ability to remember or recall the characteristics of a given object place, people or form in a mental image. If we have trouble inputting information into our short term memory, we can’t process it into our long term memory for permanent storage. Children with poor visual memory may often subvocalize as they read because they must rely on auditory input to help them compensate. Thus, the intersection between memory and vision is a particularly interesting domain of research because it concerns both the processes of memory and the nature of the stored representations.

Track 9: Colour Vision

Colour is created by utilizing two properties of light, energy and frequency of vibration or wavelength. Our brain separates these two properties of light, energy and wavelength, and then recombines them into colour perception. Colour processing starts with the photoreceptors that convert light energy into neural signals. Then the parallel channels leading from the retina to the thalamus carrying information into visual cortex, where colour is ultimately determined.

Track 10: Optic Nerve

The optic nerve is cranial nerve that transmits information from the retina of the eye to the visual cortex of the brain. This visual information includes brightness perception, colour perception and visual acuity. Optic nerve is also responsible for neurological reflexes of the eye i.e. pupillary reflex and ciliary reflex. Visual impairment occurs when some of the nerves fibres are lost, known as optic atrophy.

Track 11:  Image Processing

The amount of image processing going on in the eyeball is astounding. The signals from your retina split into some channels that analyse the image before it reaches the brain. Dual focus on both sharpness and speed is made possible through different processing streams set up in the retina. The eye separates all the visual information into various channels and each channels is taken up different type of ganglion cells which carries information about motion or colour or edges, etc. All these channels are pre-processed by the ganglion cells before actually reaching the brain where final image interpretation happens.

Track 12: Visual Impairment

Vision loss is major issue worldwide and 285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide out of which 39 million are blind and 246 have low vision. Globally, uncorrected refractive errors are the main cause of moderate and severe visual impairment; cataracts remain the leading cause of blindness in middle and low income countries; diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma are also leading causes of vision loss.

Track 13: Sports Vision

Dominant sensory information needed by athletes during sporting activities is contributed by the visual system. It has been claimed that 95% of all physical movement is controlled visually and that this is the trigger mechanism for the initial movement of the athlete. Hence vision therapy and sports vision training can improve vision skills needed for athletes in sports.

Track 14: Vision Therapy

Vision therapy is a term used to develop or improve visual skills, abilities, visual comfort, ease, and efficiency; and change visual processing or interpretation of visual information. The vision therapy program is based on the results of a comprehensive eye examination or consultation, and takes into consideration the results of standardized tests, the needs of the patient, and the patient’s signs and symptoms. The use of lenses, prisms, filters, occludes, specialized instruments, and a computer program is an integral part of vision therapy.

Track 19: Vitreo-retinal

Retina is the light sensitive film in the back of the eye. The image is perceived here and transmitted to the brain by the optic nerve. The vitreous is the clear gel that fills the back of the eye. Diseases of retina can affect any age. Premature infants can be affected by a disease called - ROP (Retinopathy of pre-maturity). Heredity and age related degenerations can affect the retina - especially the central most sensitive part of the retina called 'macula'. The retina can detach from the back portion of the eye - a condition called 'Retinal Detachment'. The Vitreous gel can become opaque due to blood - a condition called 'Vitreous haemorrhage'. This condition can occur in diabetics following injury and in other conditions. The treatments available are Medical managements such as Laser Photocoagulation , intravitreal injections and Surgical managements such as Complex Vitreoretinal Surgery.

Track 20: Oculoplasty & Orbital Diseases

Orbit and Oculoplasty deals with the management of diseases and abnormalities of the orbit, eyelids and the lacrimal system.  Drooping of the upper eyelid (ptosis) is a common problem dealt by this Department. If the lid droop is very severe especially in young children, it can even lead to lazy eye (amblyopia). Hence correction of the condition is essential for functional and cosmetic improvement. Orbit is the bony cavity enclosing the eye. The orbit can be the seat of tumours that cause protrusion of the eyeball (proptosis). The lacrimal system drains tears into the nose and could be the site of chronic infection (dacryocystitis).

Track 21: Cataract

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye. This clouding affects vision. A cataract can happen in one or both eyes, but does not spread from one eye to the other. Most cataracts happen as the result of aging, and they are very common in older people. Cataracts affect vision by creating a cloudy area on the lens of the eye. This cloudy area can get larger over time and cause serious vision problems. The lens helps to focus light on the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. In a normal eye, light passes through a clear lens to the retina, which turns it into nerve signals that are passed to the brain. The lens must be clear for the retina to receive a sharp image. If the lens is cloudy from a cataract, the image that the brain receives will be blurred. Age-related cataracts can also cause discoloration of the lens. Over time, the clear lens slowly changes to a yellowish or brownish color, which tints vision. This gradual change in tint does not make vision blurry.

Track 22: Dry Eye

Dry eye occurs when the eye does not produce tears properly, or when the tears aren't of good quality and evaporate too quickly. Dry eye can make it more difficult to perform some activities, such as using a computer or reading for an extended period of time, and it can make some environments uncomfortable, such as the air inside an airplane. Other names for dry eye include dry eye syndrome, keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), dysfunctional tear syndrome, lacrimal keratoconjunctivitis, evaporative tear deficiency, aqueous tear deficiency, and LASIK-induced neurotrophic epitheliopathy (LNE).

In some cases, dry eye can cause inflammation of the eye's surface. Without treatment, this can lead to pain, ulcers, or scars on the cornea (the clear, dome-shaped outer surface that covers the center of the eye), and some loss of vision. But permanent vision loss from dry eye is uncommon.

Track 23: Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that result in degeneration of the optic nerve and many are caused by increased pressure inside the eye. Glaucoma can lead to vision loss and even blindness.

In most patients, glaucoma occurs when pressure inside the eye is at a level sufficient to damage to the optic nerve. The optic nerve is a bundle of more than 1 million nerve fibers. It connects the retina to the brain. The retina is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. A healthy optic nerve is necessary for good vision. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness. Glaucoma causes blindness in little over 12 percent of people with the condition. However, early treatment can often prevent serious vision loss.

Track 24: Retinal Detachment

Retinal detachment is a condition in which a layer of tissue called the retina gets lifted or pulled away from its normal position in the eye. The retina acts as a light-sensitive wallpaper in the eye, lining the inside of the eye wall and sending visual signals to the brain. There are three types of retinal detachment. They include:

  • Rhegmatogenous – In this type, a tear or break allows fluid to get under the retina and separate it from the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). The RPE is a layer of cells that nourishes the retina. These types of retinal detachments are the most common. They are also the most dangerous type, since they progress rapidly.
  • Tractional - In this type, scar tissue on the retina's surface shrinks and causes it to separate from the RPE. This type of detachment occurs in people with diabetes. It does not progress as rapidly.
  • Exudative – In this type, fluid leaks into the area underneath the retina, but there are no tears or breaks in the retina. This type is usually caused by retinal diseases, including inflammatory disorders and injury or trauma to the eye.

Track 25: Blepharitis

Blepharitis is a condition that causes inflammation in the eyelids. Many people have blepharitis. It is also called “granulated eyelids.” There are two types of blepharitis:

  • Anterior blepharitis – This type affects the outer front part of the eyelid, where the eyelashes are attached. The two most common causes of anterior blepharitis are bacteria (Staphylococcus) and scalp dandruff.
  • Posterior blepharitis – This type affects the inner eyelid, in the moist part that makes contact with the eye. This part of the eyelid contains oil (meibomian) glands. Problems with these glands cause posterior blepharitis.

People with certain skin disorders are more likely to get posterior blepharitis. These disorders include acne rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis (scalp dandruff).

Track 26: Conjunctivitis

Conjunctivitis is a medical term for inflammation of the “conjunctiva.” The conjunctiva is a thin, transparent layer of tissue that lines the inner eyelids and outer surface of the eye. While conjunctivitis is more common in children, it can also happen in adults. Conjunctivitis is also called “pink eye” or "red eye."

Conjunctivitis can be acute or chronic depending on the cause of the condition, the symptoms involved, and how long it lasts. Acute conjunctivitis usually goes away in a few days, while chronic conjunctivitis can last much longer, or come back again and again.

Importance and scope

Vision science is an interdisciplinary branch of science with a rich gamut through innovative approaches and advanced research.

Vision Science has roots in ophthalmology, optometry, behavioural neuroscience, perception psychology, cognitive science, neuropsychology, sports vision, optical physics, visual anthropology, colour science, linguistics, computer vision, artificial intelligence, and computer graphics.

Research and development in vision science addresses wide range of topics such as, visually guided behaviour and cognition, neural processes underlying visually guided behaviour, comparative anatomy and physiology of visual systems, development and plasticity of the visual systems, regenerative medicine in visual neuroscience, photoreceptor function to visual consciousness and awareness, diagnosis and treatment of vision and eye disorders, machine and computational vision.  Vision Science employs exciting new methods to investigate image processing by the eye through modern neuroscience and via measuring visual acuity and temporal resolution in the eye. The amount of image processing going on in the eyeball is astounding and the key is to understand this process at neural level. 

Vision loss is major issue worldwide and 285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide out of which 39 million are blind and 246 have low vision. Globally, uncorrected refractive errors are the main cause of moderate and severe visual impairment; cataracts remain the leading cause of blindness in middle and low income countries; diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma are also leading causes of vision loss.

Estimates suggest the approximately 10 million people in the United States are blind or visually impaired. Some sources suggest that one million adults over the age of 50 are blind, and 2.4 million are visually impaired. It is estimated that as the elderly population swells over the years, the number of adults with vision impairments is expected to double. Figures also show that only 46% of working-age adults have vision impairments and 32% of legally blind adults of working age are gainfully employed. Similarly in the UK, there are almost 2 million people living with sight loss. Of these, around 360,000 are registered as blind or partially sighted.

But the hard fact remains is that 80% of all visual impairment can be prevented or cured. An estimated 19 million children are visually impaired. Of these, 12 million children are visually impaired due to refractive errors, a condition that could be easily diagnosed and corrected. 1.4 million are irreversibly blind for the rest of their lives and need visual rehabilitation interventions for a full psychological and personal development.

Through innovative research, techniques like Gene therapy shows promise in restoring some vision in people who have inherited a faulty gene. Stem cell transplant also shows immense promise in treating certain rare blind diseases.

A Unique Opportunity for Advertisers and Sponsors at this International event:

Vision is perhaps the primary human sensory modality, vision research is perhaps the most advanced of research on sensory systems and is driven by increasing adoption and demand for creative challenging technologies.

Firstly, the value of the global market for ophthalmic devices, diagnostics, and surgical equipment was an estimated $15.2 billion in 2009. It is estimated to increase more than $19 billion in 2014, for a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.6%. The largest sector of the market, contact lenses, is projected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 3.3%, rising to more than $7.7 billion in 2014, after being valued at nearly $6.6 billion in 2009. The second largest sector, the ophthalmic surgical market, is estimated at $5.5 billion in 2009, and is expected to increase at a five-year compound annual growth rate of 5.9% to reach more than $7.3 billion in 2014. The ophthalmic diagnostics sector is estimated to reach $4 billion in 2014, after rising at a CAGR of 5.2% from its 2009 value of nearly $3.1 ­billion. The aging of the population worldwide will result in a massive increase in the 65 and over population by 2030, a population that accounts for the highest incidence of eye disorders and diseases.

 

 

Secondly, colour science and vision psychology has massive scope in the advertising industry and media industry. In visual marketing, colour reigns supreme. Colour brings harmony. Visual stimulation, when done correctly, engages the viewer and brings about creating an inner sense of order and balance in the visual experience.

 

 

Thirdly, the pursuit of sport and recreational activities is a multi-billion dollar industry that has seen tremendous growth the past few decades. In fact, 217 million Americans ages ranging six and older take part in at least one sports activity. Sport has been identified as the most common cause of severe eye injury.  The role for eye care practitioners is constantly changing and as one door closes another opens hence the market for sports eyewear is expanding, lucrative and available. The market for sports vision is potentially served by approximately 12,500 optical practitioners, of whom 60% are optometrists and 40% dispensing opticians. Optometrists perform some 13million sight tests per year.

 

 

Finally, market for computer vision technologies will grow from $5.7 billion in 2014 to $33.3 billion by 2019, representing an exponential annual growth rate of 42%.  The market intelligence firm predicts that the consumer sector will experience the highest growth rate, followed by the robotics and machine vision segment. After being a research based technology for the past few decades, computer vision has become commercialized in the past few years and is being deployed in a wide range of application markets including Biometrics security and face recognition surveillance, self-driving automotive, eye tracking consumer products, industrial products, investigative ophthalmology in medicine, and entertainment like 3D viewing, to name a few.  A computer vision system captures image and then manipulates, changes, or enhances them for a given application.  Each application requires a specialized adaptation and enhancement to the computer vision algorithm, although several fundamental building blocks of algorithms are common.
