Professor Jin Yuan’s major achievement stated at conference. 80% of the information about human perception of the world comes from the eyes. If the eye is a camera with a sophisticated structure, the cornea is the front lens, the premise, and foundation for clear vision. Professor Jin Yuan takes care of the lens carefully. For the major needs of ophthalmology clinical diagnosis and treatment, Professor Jin Yuan integrates medicine, science, and engineering, focuses on the development of innovative drugs for corneal diseases, establishes innovative surgical procedures, and develops disease quantitative analysis technology. He has undertaken major national scientific research projects and multi-center, large-scale clinical trials, through which he has achieved breakthrough clinical results and transformations. After discovering the early activation mechanism and early intervention targets of ocular surface keratitis, he developed efficient and safe ocular immune anti-inflammatory drugs and anti-infective drugs; promoted the clinical sutureless application of acellular biological corneal transplantation; developed high-performance multimodal ophthalmic imaging technology to establish a multi-dimensional, intelligent quantification ocular surface and corneal damage grading system. He has promoted the establishment of a new model of accurate diagnosis and treatment of ocular surface cornea diseases, which significantly promoted the efficiency of corneal disease diagnosis and treatment, reduced the blindness rate, by providing an innovative example of integration medical practice and technologic support. These will help the ultimate realization the goal of Healthy China.
