Company debuts automated sensorimotor exam system

,

RightEye Sensorimotor is a new technology designed to greatly improve patient care and increase optometry and ophthalmology practice revenue.

RightEye LLC, an eye-tracking technology company, has launched an automated, quantitative sensorimotor exam system.

According to the company, RightEye Sensorimotor is an examination system that ophthalmologists and optometrists can perform on every patient, allowing them to objectively identify and quickly address binocular vision issues and oculomotor dysfunction.

The complete hardware-and-software solution is easily integrated into the existing practice’s patient flow, requiring little to no unbillable doctor time. And, because it is insurance reimbursable, it can add substantial incremental revenue to a practice.

Sensorimotor is an examination of the basic eye motor component of an optometric or ophthalmic exam and detects, assesses, monitors, and/or manages strabismus and oculomotor conditions. 

CPT lists a quantitative sensorimotor exam as a required element of a comprehensive eye exam.

Sensorimotor exams are also recommended by the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus.

“We worked hand-in-hand with insurance billing experts and the nation’s leading eye care doctors to develop this revolutionary technology,” said Adam Gross, CEO and co-founder of RightEye. “I am so excited to be able to bring this to the market so that doctors can provide enhanced care to their patients – quickly, accurately, and profitably.”

Studies show that 30% of people have binocular vision issues or oculomotor dysfunction. 

Ophthalmologists and optometrists understand the importance of running sensorimotor exams on their patients to identify these issues, but until now, traditional manual exams were time-consuming and did not provide the quantifiable data or precise reports that facilitate diagnosis and treatment.

The industry-leading eye-tracking technology that is incorporated in RightEye Sensorimotor allows doctors to efficiently offer an invaluable patient service that differentiates their practice from their competition.

Screenings can be conducted in less than 30 seconds by a technician.

If the patient fails the screening, and the doctor identifies medical necessity, the full automated sensorimotor exam can be run in less than five minutes. Data-rich test results are produced in seconds allowing doctors to immediately develop and deliver their diagnosis to the patient.
