Durham inventor seeks production partner to manufacture optometry innovation

Durham optometrist turned inventor Simon Berry is looking for a production partner to manufacture a specialist device, which he believes can counter the problem of taking accurate eye measurements of children with Down’s Syndrome.

Conventional eye testing equipment measures focusing ability by getting children to look directly at a target.

However, an inability to hold close focus, known as ‘accommodative lag’, is common in children with Down’s Syndrome, due to their learning difficulties and problems with concentration.

Simon, who specialises in children’s eye care at his practice in Gilesgate, Durham, and also works at Sunderland Eye Infirmary as a Specialist Optometrist, feels a gap exists in the market for something more engaging to capture attention whilst taking clinical measurements.
