How I sdoes i t e f f e cit t i v ework? ?


Step 1: Visual F i e l d Te s t

• Patients put on the headset and take a visual field test • Patients see concentric circles and streaks of light • We map the areas they cannot see with a Scotoma Marker

Scotoma Marker


Optic Nerve Dark area: Patient’s scotoma (blind spot)

Fu n d u s A u t o f l u o r e s c e n c e p h o t o with overlaid Ocutrx Scotoma Marker Red Dots: Test areas where patients cannot see Green Dots: Test areas where patients can see Key takeaway: Our unique scotoma marker software matches patient’s scotoma (blind spot) per eye

Green Circle: Scotoma Marker


4K cameras

Scotoma Marker saved in processing unit

Step 2: Pa t e n t e d Pixel Mapping

Dynamic Opacity Lens

Battery Micro-displays

• • • •

Scotoma Marker data is stored in processing unit Video from 4K cameras taken from real world Patented technology moves images outside of scotoma Micro-displays project hybrid image onto lens


Step 3:

Infrared Lights

Pa t e n t e d E y e -Tr a c k i n g Eye-tracking cameras

•Infrared lights illuminate eye gaze, allowing eye-tracking cameras to follow eye movement •Eye-tracking keeps scotoma marker in line with augmented image on lens


Step 4: Revolutionary In-Home Pa t i e n t Monitoring

• • • •

Oculenz sends visual field test results to physicians via HIPAA-secured cloud Alerts physician if scotoma changes, indicating possible disease progression Allows in-home monitoring of patient’s disease Can reduce unnecessary visits to physician’s office


Before Oculenz:

After Oculenz:

Step 5: Image is moved around blind spot to areas of healthy retina


Is it I s i teffective? effective?

H ow is Ocu t rx’s O c u l e nz revolu t ion a ry? VISUAL FIELD TESTING

Other visual field test systems cost up to $25,000 and require 20 minutes per eye Oculenz is significantly less costly Our in-home test requires 5 minutes per eye



All other visual aids only magnify the image and do not move the image onto healthy retina

Oculenz alerts doctors when the blind spot (scotoma) changes, allowing for in-home monitoring of disease

AMD patients who have used Oculenz said it improved their quality of life significantly

Reduces unnecessary doctor visits and increases essential visits that might have otherwise been missed


EyAlignz™ For Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)


Who has Amblyopia?

• Leading cause of monocular vision loss in children and young adults • Leading cause of blindness in one eye • 200,000+ additional patients each year • Treatable for children & adults













Cu rren t Am blyopia Trea t m en t

• Current bandage patching is less effective due to non-compliance; children are not wearing patches • Current bandage patching does not offer binocular integration, which is essential for correcting lazy eye • VR therapy does not allow patients to walk while wearing device


H ow d oes EyA lig n z work ? • AR headset electronically occludes dominant eye • Patches dominant eye which forces nondominate (lazy eye) to follow AR icons/images • Tracks eye gaze through patented eyetracking technology and monitor patient’s progress • As lazy eye improves, device gradually reduces dominant eye patching • This promotes binocular integration


H ow is Ocu t rx’s E y A l ig nz revolu t ion a ry? G A M I F I C AT I O N


Gamifies therapy as children use eye-tracking technology to chase dragons and dance with princesses

In-home monitoring allows for daily tracking of eye alignment therapy, without needing to visit doctor’s office

Increase compliance by prescribing fun, customized treatment tailored to each patient’s preference

Doctors can remotely personalize therapy based on data received


Promote lazy & dominant eye to work binocularly by gradually changing the lens’ shading EyAlignz therapy is customized and will enable faster vision rehabilitation


™ OR-Bot and ORLenz™

The surgery system of the future.


What’s the problem with current surgery I s i t e f f e c t i v esystems? ?


Better Ergonomics


Surgeons who experience neck, back, body, or musculoskeletal pain


Surgeons who reduce number of surgeries they perform due to pain


Surgeons who retire from surgery due to pain

“Surgeon positioning should be a high priority in the OR. The ergonomics team identifies ergonomic risk factors when assessing general work tasks, including awkward postures and prolonged duration of tasks performed. The General Surgery residents are in surgery between 5 and 8 hours, so we make recommendations that will address those risk factors.” -- Marissa Penitco Department of Surgery Ergonomics Corordinator; Duke Ergonomics Division, Duke University


Pro b l e m s w i t h c u r re n t s u rg e r y systems… Ergonomics

• Current surgery systems force surgeons to strain back, neck, and arms during operations

Space Constrains

• Current surgery systems require SOM and digital camera to be directly over the patient, which limit surgeon’s agility

Poor Resolution

• Current surgery systems have limited resolution at 1080P • Current surgery systems do not have true 4K resolution • 3D glasses block 50% of light and obscure surgeon’s vision

Problems with 3D glasses • 3D glasses dramatically block surgeon’s view • Current headsup surgery systems require surgeons to wear polarized 3D glasses to view the television monitor • 3D glasses block 50% of light • 4K television only projects half or less of the 4K resolution to each eye, meaning the resolution s surgeon sees is not true 4K and is only 1080p


What’s I s i the t e f f e csolution? tive?


OR-Bot Surgery Visualization Theatre


Dr. Bill Link, PhD says… “The new OR-Bot will offer surgeons several comfortable, lightweight, and ergonomically sound solutions to better perform delicate ophthalmic procedures with faster-surgery setup and turn around.”
