Dra. Silvia Ana Comastri
Graduated in Physics (1977) and Doctor in Physical Sciences (1984) from the Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences of the University of Buenos Aires (UBA), Dra. S. A. Comastri´s research interests are the design and analysis of optical systems, the study of the optics of the eye and the development of techniques for vision diagnosis and treatment. She was a Researcher of the National Council of Scientific and Technical Research (CONICET) of Argentine (from 1987 to 2013, year in which she retired), Researcher at the Optics Laboratory - Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences - UBA (from 1977 to 2006) and Director of the Optics and Vision Group – Faculty of Engineering - UBA (from 2007 to 2013). From 2013 until nowadays she is an External Researcher of the Laser, Materials Optics and Electromagnetic Applications Group - Faculty of Engineering - UBA and is a member of the Opulens R & D Group dedicated to the development of ophthalmic lenses (progressive addition, bifocal, atorical, etc.) to be carved with Freeform technology. She was Assistant and later Adjunct Professor at the Department of Physics – FCEN - UBA (1975 to 1998); Professor at the University of Belgrano - Argentine (1998-2003) and Visiting Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Natural Sciences-University of Applied Sciences-Darmstadt-Germany (2002). She has directed 3 Theses and has been an advisor (with authorization from CONICET) in Pfortner-Cornealent Laboratory (2003, 2005, 2006) and in Opulens (2010, 2011, 2012). She has done collaborative research in the Vision Department of the Institute of Research in Light, Environment and Vision - University of Tucumán; in the Optics and Laser Laboratory – CAC - Atomic Energy National Commission - Argentine and in the Optics and Dimensional Laboratory – INTI - Argentine.
She has been awarded the Prize for the Scientific and Technological Production of the University of Buenos Aires (years 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1995) and three Prices of the University of Belgrano (years 2006, 2007 and 2010). She has been Referee of 20 papers submitted to international scientific journals, Member of Jury for 14 theses and CONICET External Evaluator of 8 projects and / or researchers. She has written a Chapter of the book "La Córnea en Apuros" and two booklets for University students (“Óptica Geométrica y Física, Termometría y Calor” y “Conceptos de Electricidad y Magnetismo”) edited by Belgrano University. She has published over 70 reviewed papers in Scientific Journals; presented more than 20 communications
in International Congresses and 60 in Argentine ones; participated in 20 Workshops and presented over 20 talks in Scientific Meetings.

Software developer in the field of entertainment (2005-2009), and control systems for the oil industry (2009-2011). He published more than 7 papers in international scientific journals; presented more than 7 papers in National and International Conferences; performed two research stays in France and Austria and attended eight postgraduate courses. 1 Thesis co-directed and assisted in the supervision of FCEN-UBA students funded by company Blackberry.
Graduated in Physical Sciences at Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences (FCEN) of the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) (1994) as theoretical physicist, he eventually moved to applied physics in 1997. In 2000 he developed a corneal topographer marketed worldwide by several international brands. From 2003 up today he serve as research consultant for Japanese and American companies designing ophthalmologic diagnostic instruments. Since 2009 he cooperates with Opulens R&D - Argentina on progressive lens design. His fields of research include: corneal topography, retinal oximetry by hyperespectral analysis, human eye aberrations, corneal biomechanics, and progressive lens design. He has published more than a dozen articles in International Scientific Journals. He has written chapters of several books and has been a lecturer in many congresses and workshops in the country and worldwide.
