10,000  Patient Eyes Examined with Wearable AR/VR Diagnostic Platform

10,000 Patient Eyes Examined with Wearable AR/VR Diagnostic Platform

The company's platform delivers real-time vision diagnoses with six vision diagnostic exams, supported with five reimbursable CPT medical billing codes, in a single, wearable AR/VR headset. Eye care physicians can perform suprathreshold and full threshold visual fields, contrast sensitivity testing, color vision screening (both Ishihara and the Farnsworth D-15 extended color vision test), and dark adaptation. The platform replaces several legacy diagnostic devices and exceeds traditional standards of care in usability, cost, size, and portability.
