Diopsys Receives CE Mark for its VEP Vision Testing Systems
Date:11/2/2011

PINE BROOK, N.J., Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Diopsys, Inc. announced today that its Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) Vision Testing Systems have been awarded the CE mark. The company has begun a roll-out of its patented vision testing devices to EU customers.

Diopsys completed a rigorous inspection of its total quality system in order to qualify for CE status.  "Having the CE mark opens many opportunities for us to provide clinicians and patients across the EU access to our advanced VEP technology," says Joseph Fontanetta, CEO of Diopsys, "Our VEP devices are designed to be used in an office setting and our patented technology overcomes many limitations of traditional VEP devices. Testing times are much faster than older VEP devices and our reports are easier to interpret. We are proud to bring an operator-friendly, objective, functional vision test to patients in need."

Diopsys is the developer and marketer of the Diopsys® NOVA-VEP Vision Testing Systems utilized by ophthalmologists and optometrists to aid in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of vision disorders, including glaucoma, a disease affecting millions globally. The company has also developed and markets the Enfant® Pediatric VEP Vision Testing System, a device used to test for visual deficits, including amblyopia, in children as young as six months of age.

Visual Evoked Potentials (VEPs) are electrical signals that are a measure of the electrophysiological activity at the visual cortex. VEP results are a representation of the functional integrity of all levels of the visual pathway including the eye, retina, optic nerve, and visual cortex. This technology has been used for a variety of applications that involve neuro-visual disorders such as glaucoma, amblyopia, multiple sclerosis and diabetic retinopathy, among many others.(1,2,3,4 )
