Currently, cataract and refractive surgeons rely on personal information about visual behavior communicated by patients either verbally or in written form. The information provided through these surveys may be misleading due to what is known in psychology as Memory Bias. In addition to anecdotal information, the Vivior Monitor combines data from the patient’s behavior with objective measurements. The patient wears the device during the testing period, and the Vivior Monitor captures information about daily activities, e.g. working on a computer, tablet, smartphone, gardening, driving, and so on.

The Vivior Monitor consists of sensors measuring distance, ambient light and color, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a magnetometer. The Vivior Monitor does not include a camera or any other sensors which might infringe the privacy of the patient or other people.
It is worn on prescription or clear glasses. Clear spectacles are provided in the package. The recorded data are uploaded to the cloud when the system is returned for processing and analysis. Sensor data are converted into patient behavioral data using state-of-the-art artificial intelligence algorithms and provided to the surgeon in the form of intuitive visuals. The system also provides the surgeon with a patient report so that the surgeon can educate the patient during the pre-op planning discussion.
