Objective Acuity

How Objective Acuity is making a difference in the world

Objective Acuity has developed the first portable and objective vision screening test for children based on visual acuity, and is proven to more accurately detect vision problems in young children than traditional screening methods such as eye charts. Identifying vision problems as early possible is important because undetected vision problems can reduce school achievement, harm the development of hand-eye coordination and lead to a lifelong reduction in vision. 

Objective Acuity is a UniServices spin-out commercialising unique technology developed by Dr Ben Thompson, an Associate Professor of Optometry and Vision Science at the University of Auckland, and Dr Jason Turuwhenua and Dr Mehrdad Sangi at the University of Auckland’s Auckland Bioengineering Institute
