About NovaVision, Inc.

NovaVision, Inc., headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., develops and provides scientifically based, innovative medical devices and comprehensive solutions to restore the vision of patients with neurological visual impairments. Nova Vision's FDA-cleared medical device, NovaVision VRT(R) Vision Restoration Therapy is based on neuroplasticity -- the brain's ability to adapt and form new connections to compensate for injury. NovaVision diagnostic testing maps areas where vision may be improved, and therapy targets and stimulates regions within the brain's vision-processing areas.

VRT is based on more than 10 years of research with clinical studies published in leading journals including Nature Medicine, Neurology, and The Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience. Data from a recent retrospective study identified that more than 70 percent of patients who underwent VRT for an initial six-month treatment period showed measurable improvements in their vision.

More than 1,000 patients have been treated with VRT and clinical results are positive. VRT is currently offered at more than 45 leading neurological, eye and rehabilitation centers nationwide. For more information and a list of centers offering VRT, please visit http://www.novavision.com or call 888.205.0800.
