BETHESDA, Md., March 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — RightEye LLC, today revealed the winner of its 2020 RightEye Impact Award(™), Dr. Neil Renaud of EagleEye Performance Vision in Holland, MI. Dr. Renaud will be honored for his dedication to improving his patients’ lives, at an awards ceremony on Friday March 13th at the EagleEye Performance offices. The Mayor of Holland, Nathan Bocks and U.S. Representative serving Michigan’s 2nd District, Bill Huizenga have been invited to attend the ceremony, in addition to a number of local leaders in the fields of education, healthcare, and business.
Dr. Renaud was selected for this honor for his work helping an eleven-year-old patient who was struggling with schoolwork, experiencing blurry and double vision, as well as attention issues, poor comprehension, clumsiness and poor handwriting. Following a RightEye test, Dr. Renaud diagnosed oculomotor dysfunction of pursuits, saccades and fixations. Dr. Renaud developed a personalized vision therapy program for his patient based on the dysfunction shown on the patient’s RightEye results. Following the customized vision therapy program, the student’s performance in reading, handwriting and his ability to pay attention improved drastically, and blurry and double vision became non-existent.

This program was created to recognize, honor and celebrate the many unsung accomplishments of healthcare providers worldwide who are transforming peoples’ lives through measuring and treating functional vision health. RightEye is an eye movement biomarker company using eye-tracking technology to revolutionize health care and to help more accurately identify health and vision issues. The RightEye Impact Award received submissions from across the United States as well as from Australia, the Netherlands, Albania and Canada.
The finalists were judged based on the magnitude of clinical progress and the patients’ improved quality of life. Each story is impactful, compelling and unique, but all providers used RightEye technology in one or more of the following ways to make an impact: identify eye movement issues, validate patient symptoms and need for treatment, communicate findings visually via reports, motivate and change the mindset of patients and demonstrate treatment progress. Award applicants used a variety of RightEye tests including Brain Health, Reading, and Functional Vision as well as RightEye’s EyeQ Trainer for improving oculomotor dysfunction.

“Congratulations to Dr. Renaud and his entire team – their work is exceptionally worthy of this recognition and they have made an enormous difference in the lives of their young patient. However, all of the submissions are impressive and I want to thank everyone who participated in the RightEye Impact Award. They made it quite difficult for my team and I to select a winner,” explained RightEye’s CEO Adam Gross. “Many people never realize that eye movement testing and treatments that address visual/brain processing can actually make a huge difference for them. These stories are inspiring to all of us at RightEye and we continue to work every day to provide healthcare providers with a ground-breaking, FDA-cleared tool to help them improve patient care while expanding their practices.”
