On July 20 at the Four Seasons Vancouver, Jay Cormier, President & CEO of Eyedaptic will present a first generation prototype at the OIS (Ophthalmology Innovation Summit) at ASRS (America Association for Retinal Specialists), bringing hope to a community of Late Stage Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) sufferers.
For many who are visually impaired, including those with AMD, the world has disappeared before their eyes. AMD is now the leading causing of blindness in the US for people over 60 years of age, robbing individuals of their independence and ability to perform the most basic tasks such as reading a paper, preparing a meal or working at the computer. Many visual aids thus far have failed to go beyond image magnification, fueling the need to find an impactful solution within the ophthalmic field.
As a software technology company, Eyedaptic’s aim is to deliver life-changing solutions to those suffering from vision loss. They recognized the power of using assistive Augmented Reality (AR) devices by developing a game-changing device with embedded simulated natural vision software.
Designed as a mobile visual aid to address the sufferer’s diminishing retinal field, Eyedaptic’s proprietary Vision ‘Portal’ essentially optimizes the user’s remaining field of vision. Eyedaptic’s EYE-01 prototype platform has been validated in multiple user meetings over the last 12 months, with overwhelmingly positive response.
At OIS prior to ASRS, Eyedaptic will share their story and pre-clinical evaluation data. The OIS franchise precedes several ophthalmic and optometric academies and unites thousands of industry and clinical leaders each year, while ASRS is the largest retinal organization in the world. Serving as a national advocacy group and source of clinical and scientific information and education for its 3,000 members, in the US and in 59 countries globally.
