The sky is not the limit.
Andrew Feustel, also known as "Drew" is a name that may not ring a bell if you are not in the field... At least not in the Earth's field. Drew Feustel started out as an automobile mechanic, a restorer, a geophysicist, but most of all, today, he is an inspiring space traveler. From starting as a mechanic during school, to becoming an astronaut on board of the latest Shuttle and Soyuz station, the leap is enormous; but his passion for mechanics, racing and motorcycles has stayed with him always, even during extravehicular activities in space for NASA.
Passion is also the common thread that has brought together, during the 37th edition of ESCRS, the most important European scientific meeting for ophthalmologists, NASA, National Aeronautics and Space Administration; LCR, Lucio Cecchinello Racing and SIFI, Società Industria Farmaceutica Italiana (Italian Pharmaceutical Industrial Company).
For one evening, in Paris, NASA's Andrew "Drew" Feustel, SIFI's Carmelo and Fabrizio Chines and the LCR team were on stage for a very special event.
This event was a Round Table Discussion promoted by SIFI, presenting the latest data on Driving Vision Science, a scientific study, born from the forward-looking partnership between SIFI and LCR and specifically Lucio Cecchinello, and starring four undisputed opinion leaders in ocular surface surgery and dry eye.
Driving Vision Science is a scientific investigation, with the aim of analyzing the effects of competitive motorcycle racing on pilots' vision. Through an original cross-pollination of know-how between the different project partners, protocols, tests, assessments, analysis and data collection have emerged, becoming strategic in the near future for the development of products dedicated to the general public and dealing with the problems of daily ocular discomfort.
