AmblyoPlay among exibitors of Web Summit!

1 December 2017 / by Matic Ozebek

Between Nov 6-9 Web Summit took place in Lisbon, Portugal. Web Summit is the largest gathering of technology community in the world with 60.000 attendees from both corporate and startup worlds, as well as policy leaders, entrepreneurs, investors and NGOs.

Each year selected startups get to present their solutions to this group of attendees on dedicated stands. This year Smart Optometry was among the chosen ones with our latest solution – AmblyoPlay. In the vicinity of HealthConf stage, where inspiring eHealth and MedTech topics were discussed, constant stream of interested investors, fellow startup entrepreneurs as well as media flew by Smart Optometry stand and there were many who stopped to both learn more and try out AmblyoPlay on their own.

Positive feedback that was received was an instant inspiration and encouragement for the continuation and finalisation of the development of this smart vision therapy for children with AmblyoPlay. It once again underlined how wide-spread this problem is, with several visitors reporting their own personal experience with Vision Therapy in their youth, or the experiences of their relatives. What was mentioned very often is precisely the focal point of AmblyoPlay: problem is not that there are no vision therapy methods that work; but rather, none of the current methods is not fun, stimulating and engaging enough.

Lisbon once again proved that for 3 days each year it becomes startup/tech capital of the world, providing inspiration and energy boost for all attending. Final Center Stage lecture by Al Gore on climate change was just the final example of that: encouraging all to take action and make this world a better place for current and future generations!

Smart Optometry Among Health Pioneers in Amsterdam!

17 November 2017 / by Matic Ozebek

At the end of October, Smart Optometry was among 100 best healthcare startups being presented at Health Pioneers conference in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This conference is the ultimate meeting point for innovators advancing digital healthcare across Europe and beyond and brings together major healthcare startups, innovators, corporations and investors.

During the 2-day event, we had an amazing opportunity to meet and discuss the challenges of health sector, especially what are the main challenges that face new startups entering this industry. It became apparent that talent and knowledge are the main strengths that startups bring to the table, while a lot still has to be done in regards to addressing the regulatory demands in this field.

Smart Optometry, with both Smart Optometry vision screening application for eye care professionals as well as with AmblyoPlay vision therapy for children with binocular vision dysfunctions (such as lazy eye), joined the lively discussion emphasising the role of preventive medicine and timely intervention to avoid much more severe health problems in the future. The decision to venture into children health care with AmblyoPlay using new technologies and offering remote supervision to the physicians, while maintaining product user friendly and highly intuitive, was lauded as a great example of keeping solutions simple for the users with complexity running in the background.

Although the 1-on-1 meetings were scheduled throughout the whole day, the main stage offered many interesting lectures and presentations by already well established startups. Statements like that of Johannes Schildt co-founder of market-leading Swedish video doctor platform KRY: »90% of primary healthcare will be moving online,« or “Data is going to be the foundation of the transformation in health care,” by Bart de Witte, Director of Digital Health in the DACH region for IBM Germany only further emphasised that the future of healthcare is in digital and that it will be driven by personalised and customised approaches based on the data. Bart de Witte further emphasised this importance: »Going forward we need to start thinking in terms of a platform economy, stop using data protection as an excuse to block innovation and put more money into the market. And there’s going to be a huge battle to become the platform that’s a kind of Google for health data.«

Smart Optometry Presents: AMBLYOPLAY – therapy for children with lazy eye!

15 September 2017 / by Matic Ozebek

Smart Optometry Ltd is proud to present our latest product which addresses a serious issue of children with lazy eye: amblyoplay!

amblyoplay is a gamified vision therapy for children with amblyopia, primarily targeting children between 4 and 14 years of age. It is our answer to this grave problem that according to latest UK studies affects up to 5 % of the population.

Therapy using amblyoplay is done through fusion training and by playing games using either eye patch (when binocularity is in its infant stages) or red / green filter glasses which shows partial complementary image to both eyes, thus requiring coordinated work by both eyes to be able to progress in the game.

amblyoplay is being developed by Smart Optometry team in cooperation with international experts and eye care specialists from Germany and Slovenia. It is entering clinical testing and is schedule to become publicly available in first quarter of 2018.
