New Generation of Vision Testing Technology to be Introduced at Vision Expo West
San Diego, CA, Sept. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Guardion Health Sciences, Inc. (“Guardion” or the “Company”) (GHSI) announced that it has completed development of its proprietary CSV-2000 standardized contrast sensitivity test and will introduce the commercial product at Vision Expo West, a conference for ophthalmic professionals, in Las Vegas, Nevada, from September 18 to 21, 2019. The CSV-2000 is the only computer-generated vision testing instrument available that will provide the optical marketplace with the Company’s proprietary, industry-standard contrast sensitivity test, along with a full suite of standard vision testing protocols. The proprietary standardization methodology incorporated into the CSV-2000 includes a patented technology known as AcQviz that automatically and constantly measures and adjusts screen luminance to a fixed standard light level for vision testing.
Michael Favish, Guardion’s Chief Executive Officer, commenting on the launch of this next generation of vision testing technology, stated, “The VectorVision CSV-2000 represents a paradigm shift in the accuracy and consistency of vision testing. This technology will allow doctors to more accurately and consistently quantify when treatment is needed and then document outcomes related to various therapies. The introduction of this technology extends Guardion’s leadership in the diagnosis and monitoring of vision changes related to eye disease.”
