About the presentation:
Strabismus is an ocular condition that occurs due to an imbalance in ocular muscle tension. It interferes with development of binocular vision and may lead to amblyopia. Both children and adults can be affected. This can be caused by event during pregnancy of the mother, or around birth. Double vision may also be caused in adults due to head injury, stroke, and other neurologic conditions.
The prism diopter test is the current standard in diagnosing and assessing strabismus (the angle of misalignment). Our PinpointEyes-App technology standardizes the testing platform to be reproducible, with predictable results regardless of the examiners experience.
PinPointEyes-Glasses are self-contained smart technology glasses which replaces eye patching for those afflicted with the condition. The glasses are able to measure a variety of variables continuously and take actions to reshape the pathways controlling the movements of the eye.
