Posted by Knar Bedian on Nov 10, 2016 3:59:21 PM

Our three product strategists chatted with Dean Travers, the CEO of Luminopia, a content platform that leverages the power of affordable virtual reality to help treat visual disorders.

In this episode we hear how Dean tackles the challenge of improving vision treatment for users with amblyopia (commonly referred to as “lazy eye”), a sight disorder in which the eye and brain are misaligned. By leveraging smartphone-powered virtual reality technology, Dean and the Luminopia team have developed an afforable means for vision treatment. Dean shares Luminopia's origin story, and how the team is using VR to help users improve their vision without drastically changing their habits.
