Visual Disorders, Learning and Plasticity: Adapting Vision to the World We Live In

On October 24, Eyecarrot attended the ninth annual Sheldon M. Golden Clinical Translation Conference at UC Berkeley. The event this year focused on Visual Disorders, Learning and Plasticity, showcasing recent research demonstrating the ability of the human visual system to adapt to a multitude of vision problems at much older ages than previously anticipated.As the lead sponsor of the conference, Eyecarrot revealed the newest hardware and software prototypes of the Binovi Cloud including the Saccadic Fixator, Mobile, and Enterprise systems. Attendees had an opportunity to try the new Saccadic Fixator and work through a series of games on the Binovi Mobile application. With the goal of enhancing the measurement and tracking of oculomotor sensory performance in mind, Eyecarrot brought a new awareness to the interdependencies of vision and motor function.

With over 100 attendees participating, the Golden Conference brought together new graduates, researchers, practitioners and entrepreneurs from the vision science community to learn more about ophthalmologic research findings and their applications to clinical settings. The program provided an interactive forum for six internationally renowned leaders in their fields; Takao Mensch PhD, Daphne Maurer PhD, Dennis Levi OD PhD, Jonathan Horton MD PhD, Rowan Candy OD PhD, and Jyoti Mishra PhD to share new possibilities and clinical treatments of visual disorders for the future.

“Eyecarrot is pleased to have participated in this research conference, and would like to congratulate Dr. John Flanagan and team for assembling the impressive group of presenters and for their coordinating their special areas of expertise. Those of us representing Eyecarrot are most appreciative of the warmth and hospitality afforded us, and would hope that both Berkeley and its industrial partners will continue to build partnerships of prime benefit to the public. The audience were both entertained and educated in seeing how each of the following presenters defined vision disorders, learning and plasticity, and adapting to the world that mice and men live in.” commented Dr. Selwyn Super, Chief Scientific Officer.

Eyecarrot will continue to work with UC Berkeley Optometry in developing a normative data study to validate the Eyecarrot Binovi product suite as a robust measurement tool for oculomotor sensory system performance, ultimately progressing development in the field of vision science.

Eyecarrot’s next stop is the Healthcare Innovation Lab at the Exponential Medicine Conference in San Diego, California hosted by Singularity University.
