IbisVision and UCLan refraction collaboration

Remote eye care technology developer IbisVision is partnering with the University of Central Lancashire on research to fine tune its processes for remote refractive eye tests.

Some 30 students would undertake the role of clinicians and patients under the supervision of a registered optometrist to help them gain a deeper understanding of the mechanics of refraction.

In return, IbisVision aimed to refine its remote eye test, involving an internet connection and computer screen, in order to support patients across the world who lack access to eye care.

The programme would experiment with different targets and visual backgrounds to relax the eyes and encourage patients to look further into the distance.
