What is the RETIPLUS® system?
THE RETIPLUS SYSTEM is a software installed on EPSON MOVERIO SmartGlasses that the patient wears and a tablet that the O/O perates.
The O/O RETIPLUS KIT is composed of the aforementioned devices with RETIPLUS inside that are exclusively dedicated to the “RETIPLUS Digital Eye test”.
Both devices are connected via Bluetooth so the Tablet screen shows the same image as the SmartGlasses displays. All image parameters that the O/O configure on the Tablet (position, size, zoom, bright, contrast) show on the displays on real time. This is what we call “RETIPLUS digital eye test”.
How does RETIPLUS work?
RETIPLUS uses the SmartGlasses front-camera (1) to capture the image in front of the patients eyes (figure # 2). Our proprietary algorithm processes the video image captured by the camera in real-time to be processed according to the specific patient vision condition.
The process is defined and calibrated by eye care professional. Then, the video image is projected on the SmartGlasses displays (2), superimposing a computer-generated image on a user’s view of the real world, thus providing a composite view optimized for maximizing patients vision.
Finally, during its use in daily activities, the user is able, thanks to the SmartGlasses controller (3), to calibrate the video-parameters as brightness and contrast as well as making zoom in/zoom out and other functions as contours & silhouette view. This enables its perfect adaptation to different environments, ambient lights and to long and short distance. It makes RETIPLUS the ALL-IN-ONE solution for every activity of daily living (static and mobility tasks).
