Objectives

Preserve the patient’s vision
Restore patients’ autonomy & reduce costs for the community

Our technology helps young patients with rare ophthalmological diseases to preserve their visual acuity and hence avoid visual handicap. For patients with a more degenerated retina, our technology can improve their visual acuity. Our goal is to halt disease progression and prevent patients from losing autonomy but also to travel back in time!

There is currently no treatment for these rare diseases so the community needs to take care of these patients. Our technology will allow the society and the health care system to reduce the overheads associated with visual handicap.

 

When visual acuity is below 20/200 US (1/10 on the Monoyer scale), the capacity to move
around is reduced by a factor of three and daily activities by a factor of four. (OMS 1999)
