About VISUS ®
VISUS ® was founded in 1977 as "VISUS ® Contactlinsen GmbH" by Peter Fanti in Hamburg. As a pilot project and first contact lens institute, special lenses were adapted. Located for the first time in the Rotebaumchausee, the institute moved to the Jungfernstieg in a prime city location. About 10 years later, Peter Fanti founded the branch office in Stuttgart, also as a contact lens institute. After a few years, they recognized VISUS ® the new possibilities of an optometric vision test. As a result of this step, VISUS® has already made a name for itself among the pioneers of optometry for exclusive eye test products. At the same time VISUS also discovered the possibilities of visual training on European further education. Since then, VISUS ® has been the market leader in the Visual Training material segment, also known as "Vision Therapy".
Eyecarrot's BinoviTM platform is an innovative healthcare technology solution that integrates software, hardware, data and expert knowledge. Binovi helps Optometrists treat vision issues with in-office therapy as well as doctor led home based activities to better serve and increase the patient's experience and their therapy needs. The goal is to help transform vision performance for the 1 in 4 people worldwide that suffer from vision-related issues going beyond visual acuity. The company is transforming how vision healthcare services are integrated, while addressing key challenges in the health system.
