The visual system processes 80% of total incoming information

The visual system processes data from the retina, involving:

  • the optical system, where the cornea and the lens focuses an image of its surroundings onto the retina
  • the photoreceptive cells of the retina, which transduces patterns of light into neuronal signals
  • the primary visual cortex of the brain, which accomplishes the perception of objects and the totality of the visual scene

Age-related changes in our visual system

The most significant change is a decrease in accommodative power.

  • In the first 20y of life, accommodation is stable at 7-10 diopters
  • From 20y, the eye encounters a loss of accommodation of 0.34 diopters per year
  • By 50y, accommodation decreases to 3.50 diopters, with a distance to blur of ~25 cm
  • This decline is a natural result of aging and affects almost everyone.

Other changes result in vision disorder like presbyopia, myopia or other impairment of the sense of vision.

Acutize leverages recent developments in optical physics and neuroscience to provide you with an unique technology to improve near vision sharpness. Improvements come exploiting the two determinants of vision:

  1. Optical system of the eye
  2. Visual processing in the primary visual cortex of the brain

Visual training

Optometric training courses with game-like exercises in the following area:

  • Visual acuity
  • Ocular Motility - Saccades and Pursuits
  • Accommodation, Convergence and Miosis
  • Binocular Vision - Stereopsis
  • Visual space - Integration center / periphery

Image processing

Contrast-driven neural responses affected by lateral propagations between neurons in the visual cortex stimulated by contrast sensitivity to improve the image processing function in the primary visual cortex.
