Dr. Ramesh SVe

Dr. Ramesh S.Ve has over 14 years of academic, clinical and research experience. He is currently an Associate professor and Head, Department of Optometry, School of Allied Health Sciences, Manipal University.He has received the Indo-US Public Health Research Post-doctoral Research fellowship-2014 at Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA. He has 53 research articles in peer reviewed indexed journals and has filed 3 patent. He completed his Doctorate (PhD) in 2014 Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, India.

His thesis was aimed at estimating 5 year progression of glaucoma, both structural and functional changes evaluated using ophthalmic imaging and perimetry tests. He has extensively worked towards exploring the technological and clinical application of confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope, optical coherence tomography and scanning laser polarimetry techniques.He also has a keen interest towards techno-entrepreneurship and actively supports, is the founding director of VISINT Healthcare Pvt Ltd, incubated at Manipal University Technology and Business Incubator and recipient of BIG grant.Has developed semi-automated optic nerve head analysis software (CyOptique-GL), beta version is commercially available in India.His work on cost effective portable imaging device OcuDA, won the Gold Medal for best innovation at the DST-Lockheed Martin India Innovation Growth Programme-2013.

He has received national and industry research grants. He is nominated mentor for the DST Lockheed martin India Innovation Growth Program 2015. Currently developing Smart Tele Eye Care Kiosk-Multi Modular eye imaging.He is the India Coordinator for ERASMUS Project- Optometry Curriculum for Life long learning through Erasmus (OCULUS).He holds the post of Honorary secretary Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry- India (2012-2015) and member of the Optometric Glaucoma Society, USA. He is active member and the steering committee member of Institutional Research Committee, SOAHS, Manipal University.

VISINT Healthcare (P) in collaboration with Clinerion (Swiss Bases Startup) isintroducing a novel technology that optimizes patient recruitment for clinical trials through their patented patient recruitment technology that leverages electronic medical records (EMRs) to enable study protocol optimization, site feasibility and online patient recruitment within a network of clinical research sites. This approach typically identifies 20 to 30 times more patients from Millions of EMRs for a particular study protocol within few minutes.

Research Interest:

Areas of interest include clinical epidemiology of eye diseases- Population based prevalence and risk factors for primary & secondary glaucoma in a rural and urban south Indian population. Understand determinant leading to Blindness, visual impairment and age induced ocular changes. Estimating Progression of glaucoma using Perimetry and Optic nerve head imaging systems. Telemedicine, Innovative and disruptive technology development to meet public health need for effective eye care delivery, support techno-entrepreneurship.
