An Eye for EYES, and Here's Why
TheStreet.com-Jun 19, 2015
Today I'll return to one of my favorite ideas, Second Sight Medical ... I'll focus on another company in the vision field, Vycor Medical (VYCO). http://realmoney.thestreet.com/articles/06/19/2015/eye-eyes-and-heres-why
Follow up Article: Vycor Medical Offers Upside Through Vision Therapy
Portfolio Guru, LLC
I wrote in Friday's column about Second Sight, whose Argus II retinal implant restores sight in patients with retinitis pigmentosa and will soon enter clinical trials for age-related macular degeneration. Both conditions are obviously degenerative, but what happens when sight is impaired due to a sudden condition? Two common causes of this would be stroke and traumatic brian injury (TBI).
That's where Vycor Medical (VYCO) comes in. The company's NovaVision suite of therapies offer ability to improve quality of vision--and thus quality of life--in patients who have suffered stroke or TBI.

NovaVision develops and provides science-driven neurostimulation therapy and other medical technologies that help improve and partially restore sight in patients with neurological vision impairments. The company’s proprietary Visual Restoration Therapy® (VRT) platform is clinically supported to improve lost vision resulting from Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), or other acquired brain injuries. VRT is the only FDA 510K cleared medical device in the U.S. aimed at the restoration of vision for neurologically induced vision loss and can be prescribed by any physician. VRT also has CE Marking for the EU. NovaVision also provides Neuro Eye Therapy (NeET) in the EU, aimed at increasing visual sensitivity deep within the field defect.
The Company has also developed NeuroEyeCoach™, a therapy which is highly complementary to VRT™. The two therapies address different visual disabilities each of which results from neurologically-induced vision loss – a loss of visual field as well as difficulty with eye movement, affecting the ability to integrate visual information. VRT provides partial restoration of the patient’s lost visual field; NeuroEyeCoach™ is designed to increase the efficiency of eye movement and re-train the patients’ ability to integrate visual information between the left and right hand side.
