CEVR X ASTRI’s first-ever collaboration : Shedding Light on Hope

13 July, 2022 (Wed)

We are pleased to announce having the first-ever collaboration with Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI)!

CEVR and ASTRI Join hands together to develop at least two projects which are a Comprehensive Navigation System for People with Vision Loss and Augmented Reality (AR) for Amblyopia Treatment that will treat patients of different ages suffering from people with vision loss and lazy eye.

According to World Health Organization (WHO) statistics, globally, at least 2.2 billion people have a near or distance vision impairment.  In at least 1 billion – or almost half – of these cases, vision impairment could have been prevented or has yet to be addressed. Hope that our collaboration could help to improve the quality of life and enhance the well-being of people with visual impairment in Hong Kong.
