Mathematical Ophthalmology concerns the use of mechanistic mathematical models to derive insight into the mechanisms underpinning the structure and function of the eye in health, development and disease and to predict the effects of existing and putative treatments. It is an exciting time in Mathematical Ophthalmology. Though a relatively small field, we are reaching a tipping point as the importance of quantitative tools in ophthalmology becomes more widely recognised and the number of those working in the field reaches a critical mass. Thus, we are now at a point where a significant body of substantive research has been built up and where we are gaining increasing recognition as a community. In this minisymposium, we will showcase research in the field to the broader Mathematical Biology community, and aim to build and strengthen connections and collaborations within the Mathematical Ophthalmology community. It is hoped that this session will also encourage other applied mathematicians to conduct research in this exciting area.
