TECHNOLOGY: CLICK: The Practice & Exam Lane RightEye Releases its EyeQ Trainer Oculomotor Exercise Program By CLICK Staff Wednesday, October 9, 2019 8:03 AM BETHESDA, Md.—RightEye has released its fully commercialized version of EyeQ Trainer, a game-changing oculomotor exercise program. Paired with its suite of EyeQ Tests, RightEye now offers optometrists a complete solution for uncovering and treating functional vision impairments. RightEye's EyeQ Trainer features a completely revamped user experience that is more fun and easier to use through gamified features. The commercialized version incorporates feedback from hundreds of doctors who participated in a year-long beta test of the product. The new product also adds flexibility to both workflows and the user experience so doctors have more control and patients have more choices.EyeQ Trainer exercises are automatically assigned based on RightEye’s existing eye-tracking EyeQ Tests. Exercises take about 10 minutes per sitting, and can be completed using any computer or tablet, which the patient does for up to 30 days. After the patient has completed their prescribed training program, they return to their provider for retesting. “This is a major milestone for both RightEye and for the optometry market. We now offer a complete functional vision platform that can be easily utilized by any primary care optometrist,” said Adam Gross, RightEye co-founder and CEO. “Doctors spoke and RightEye listened. By fusing EyeQ Trainer to our award-winning EyeQ Tests, we can help improve the lives of millions while creating new revenue opportunities for our providers.”RightEye EyeQ Trainer activates the eyes' muscles, as well as key elements of brain circuitry. The circuitry activation results in better functional vision, and smoother and more accurate eye movements that directly impact quality of life. The result is training all 12 muscles of the eyes, while signals from the brain are strengthened.According to RightEye data, patients using EyeQ Trainer experienced an improvement of up to 17 percent in their functional vision measurements after just one week of use, and 93 percent of patients reported feeling better.Applications for EyeQ Trainer include:• Primary care optometrists have an opportunity to identify and help new and existing patients who they are not helping today, but are already sitting in their waiting rooms. This gives them an opportunity to become more medically-oriented practitioners and have deeper patient relationships, according to RightEye.• Vision therapists can supplement their already-comprehensive therapy programs with a computer-based exercise program that patients do at home.As the company pointed out, neuro specialists can use eye-movement exercises to stimulate regions of the brain to accelerate healing. Rehab hospitals can complement their neuro-rehabilitation programs to improve recovery. Sports trainers can improve the visual concentration, visual processing and ball-tracking ability of their athletes, as well as help prevent injuries. The military can improve performance vision and prevent injuries for soldiers. Schools can identify and address functional vision issues to improve learning.
