Philippines – the journey of Kaleidos continues

Events

It is really exciting to work in Philippines, people are so kind and Eye care specialist are empathetic and very well prepared. Recently we have participated in various screening campaigns organized in collaboration with several of our partners. Other new screening programs are being planned.

Adaptica’s vision is to provide accessibility to Eye Care Services to each and every person in the world while our devices are designed to enable eye care specialists to perform screening and eye exam in an easy, fast and accurate way.

Kaleidos is the most suited device to be used for refraction screening programs since it works perfectly in any light condition, and it is accurate, portable, fast and super easy to use.

Male dormitory at Bacoor, Cavite

The screening program involved about 60 orphaned children from the male dormitory, located in Bacoor, Cavite (southern part of Luzon). This project is the result of collaboration between The Fred Hollows Foundation International Philippines  and Qantas Foundation Australia,  along with the partnership of Myopia Control Clinic in Makati, Metro Manila.

Christian Love School

In cooperation with Carmen Abesamis-Dichoso, one of the leading Optometrist in Manila, we participated in another screening program at Christian Love School in Muntinlupa (South of Metro Manila). This time the screening involved 70 kids from kinder to elementary students. In this occasion Kaleidos contributed to detect a different cases of “High Myopic” and “Astigmatism” which are uncomplicated to address if detected in an early stage. 

We strongly believe that technology should contribute to improve people’s life. That’s why we call it Technology for Humanity.

Amgo 2019

Amgo 2019

Events

AMGO Project is a visual prevention project of Amblyopia coordinated at national level by the Institute of the blind “Francesco Cavazza ONLUS” based in Bologna and aimed at children in their earliest childhood. In 2013 it obtained the patronage of the Ministry of Health.

Amblyopia, also known as “lazy eye”, consists of a reduced development of visual function in one or both eyes due to a visual defect present in early childhood, during which time the development and maturation of the visual system takes place. If not treated promptly, this condition may result in a permanent defect.

The most common causes of amblyopia are strabismus and incorrect refractive defects (myopia, hypermetropia, astigmatism). The risk of developing amblyopia due to untreated eye disease is present in the first 4-5 years of life, i.e. during and within the plastic period of development of the visual system. The diagnosis must therefore take place as early as possible, during the period in which the visual system is still susceptible to modifications and improvements if treated correctly.

In Italy, according to statistics on the statistics, amblyopia affects from 1.6% to 3.6% of the population. Since amblyopia can only be cured at an early age, early diagnosis and early treatment are the ideal objectives to be pursued.
