Adaptica was founded in 2009 as a spin-off of the University of Padova, Italy specialising in adaptive optics and optoelectronics applied to Industry and astronomical research.
Adaptica leverages on its technological know-how and competences in astronomy to move from a better vision of the universe and its galaxies towards exploring vision and the human eye.
Adaptica soon expanded into health-care, with a particular focus on vision and eye-care. It develops and manufactures smart, mobile, easy to use diagnostic pieces of equipment that are currently distributed in over 40 countries worldwide.
We produce simple, smart, mobile devices to detect refractive errors and visual defects and solutions to diagnose and correct them.
We aim to revolutionize the vision screening process and the corrective prescription, making it widely available more rapidly and maximizing the effectiveness of diagnosis. We want to help improve people’s lives, with better vision, productivity and well-being for everyone, everywhere.
Adaptica assures has a full quality system certified by TUV-SUD, an eminent Institution ina leading European institution, for design, development, production and servicing, in accordance to with UNI EN ISO 9001: 2008 and EN ISO 13485:2012
