Ocutrx augmented reality headset helping AMD patients see clearly

California-based Ocutrx Vision Technologies has developed an augmented reality (AR) headset that helps age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients overcome severe and devastating vision loss.

Usually occurring on both eyes, AMD is caused by damage to the macula, the 1.5 mm wide, oval-shaped functional center of the retina that is responsible for detailed central vision. In the earlier stages of disease, central vision is reduced, and overall vision distorted. As the disease progresses, all central vision may be lost. 

“It's very frustrating. A lot of people give up reading, they become clinically depressed and withdrawn because they can't read or see people's faces,” Michael Freeman, Ocutrx’s founder and president, says in an interview with BioTuesdays.
