The Unmet Need & The Application
Charts used to assess visual acuity are 150 years old. Although charts have progressed from print to being displayed digitally, the technology has remained fundamentally unchanged in a century and a half.
There are many existing approaches to the measurement of visual acuity, but all rely on a cooperative subject and are intrinsically subjective. Notably, although standard visual acuity tests can be automated, they require a relatively high degree of user cooperation. Current tests are inappropriate for individuals who are unable to report what they see, nor are they suitable for children under the age of three. Objective Acuity addresses all these issues. In particular, this new technology can be the measurement of choice for the following:
Routine measurement of visual acuity in children and adults
Child screening programs for visual acuity, amblyopia and strabismus
Follow up screening of children identified in national screening programs
Objective measurement to follow progress of treatments by ophthalmologists and orthoptists
Objective Acuity technology is proprietary and therefore offers a way to differentiate visual acuity testing products from the competition.
We are developing a system to accurately and reliably test visual acuity in all people, including young children, a problem that currently has no solution.
