Xenon-VR

Where Virtual Reality Meets Eye Care

We created Xenon-VR because the current model for eye exams is inefficient for providers and time consuming for patients. We knew there had to be a better way. 

Xenon-VR is the first mobile, virtual reality ophthalmological screening device with multiple exams in one. It’s designed to streamline the eye care diagnostics process and reshape eye care as we know it.

A virtual reality platform integrated with an artificial intelligence-driven algorithm that archives exam data in the cloud, XVR enables remote viewing and data analysis for doctors to examine their patients remotely.

Our patent-pending device is poised to revolutionize ocular medicine, allowing for easy examinations and a quick and accurate diagnosis of eye diseases. This immense time saving will allow providers to focus more on patient care and revenue-generating services.

Xenon-VR

Our team has over 60 years of experience in a wide range of industries including engineering, Biotechnology and Biopharmaceutical, space and electrical research, medical tech, marketing and sales.
