Low vision treatment
Promising treatments for treating low vision
It is important to note that today 3 million French people have vision less than 3/10. Significant visual blindness but nothing compared to the rest of the world. Almost 285 million people are visually impaired. Of these, 39 million are blind and 246 million have reduced visual acuity. In order to improve the lives of these individuals, science and research are making great strides .
3 new treatments to fight against low vision
3 treatments are currently being tested before being developed and offered to patients.
– brain stimulation
Brain stimulation involves teaching the brain to see better through exercises. This would strengthen the neural connections responsible for vision. A new innovative method that acts on the brain should bear fruit.
– The “Light Vision” project »
The “Light Vision” connected glasses project comes from a young start-up. This consists of providing a pair of glasses to the patient in order to project an image directly onto his retina. The retina therefore acts as a screen and the pupil controls the system, which is called “eye-tracking”.
– cell transplant
Cell transplantation involves regenerating the retina and allowing patients to regain better vision. A great step forward that would save the lives of millions of people around the world.
These three treatments will make it possible to combat visual blindness on an international level and improve the lives of patients with very poor vision.
