A Singapore Pilot Study to Assess Neurovision in Treatment of Low Myopia

To assess how well and safe is Neurovision technology in improving the vision of people with low myopia in Singapore


The eye care industry has focused a majority of its resources on solving problems associated with the ocular or "front end" of the visual system. These investments have led to exciting technology advances, such as intraocular lenses (IOLs) and Laser Vision Correction (LVC) as well as in the development of contact lenses and improved eyewear.

NeuroVision's innovative Neural Vision Correction (NVC) technology has been developed through research focused solely on optimizing performance of the neural or "back end" of the visual system. NeuroVision's technology is distinguished from other products in this space by the Company's expert understanding of how the brain processes vision, its reliance on scientific and clinical research

It is the result of two decades of research by Dr. Uri Polat, founder, who has dedicated 20 years of scientific and clinical research to understanding how the brain processes visual information, how neural activity is related to visual perception, and how visual processing interacts with other neural systems. His work has been published in leading scientific journals and is widely cited by the scientific community.

NeuroVision's NVC vision correction technology is a non-invasive, patient-specific treatment based on visual stimulation and facilitation of neural connections responsible for vision.

The technology has been clinically proven in the treatment of adult amblyopia ("lazy eye"), which until now has been considered untreatable. The Company has received FDA 510(k) marketing clearance indicating NVC for the treatment of adult amblyopia in patients 9 years or older in the US. The Company also received Medical CE-Mark to market its Amblyopia and Low-Myopia products in the EU. Company products are also approved for use in Israel by the Israeli Ministry of Health - Device License Authority.

This study was a prospective non-controlled preliminary clinical study as a prelude to a randomized clinical trial, evaluating the efficacy and safety of NeuroVision NVC correction technology in improving visual acuity and contrast sensitivity function.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Excessive axial myopia associated with complications (especially posterior staphyloma and CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION) that can lead to BLINDNESS.

Plastic surgery of the SCLERA. This procedure is used frequently to prevent blindness and poor vision in patients, especially children, with MYOPIA.

A type of refractive surgery of the CORNEA to correct MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. An EXCIMER LASER is used directly on the surface of the EYE to remove some of the CORNEAL EPITHELIUM thus reshaping the anterior curvature of the cornea.

Detachment of the corpus vitreum (VITREOUS BODY) from its normal attachments, especially the retina, due to shrinkage from degenerative or inflammatory conditions, trauma, myopia, or senility.

A refractive error in which rays of light entering the EYE parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus in front of the RETINA when accommodation (ACCOMMODATION, OCULAR) is relaxed. This results from an overly curved CORNEA or from the eyeball being too long from front to back. It is also called nearsightedness.
