Regeneron “In My Eyes” VR Simulates Retinal Eye Conditions
In My Eyes is an immersive virtual and augmented reality experience that simulates what life could look like with three retinal eye conditions. It shows what symptoms look like from a patient’s perspective to enhance disease education, empathy, and communication.
The app can be used on a smartphone with or without a Google Cardboard virtual reality headset.
By choosing “Story Mode,” the user can see the world with three specific retinal eye conditions using virtual reality: Wet Age-related Macular Degeneration (Wet AMD), Diabetic Macular Edema (DME), and Macular Edema following Retinal Vein Occlusion (MEfRVO). First, the user can choose a patient to see life through their eyes with their eye condition. Then, they can interact with an immersive virtual reality experience that shows them the impact of a patient’s eye condition.
By choosing “Live Mode,” the user can see the world with three specific eye conditions using augmented reality: Wet AMD, DME, and MEfRVO. By viewing their immediate surroundings through a smartphone, the user can see what the symptoms of an eye condition are like – and their effect on everyday activities.
