Sightrisk Ltd. is a vision science company based in Waterford, Ireland, which provides online analytical tools to eyecare professionals in order to identify people who are at risk of developing age-related eye diseases.
The mission of Sightrisk Ltd. is to deliver technologies and analytical processes that assess the risk of an individual developing age-related vision loss. By accurately identifying an individual’s risk factors for specific eye conditions, trained professionals can provide appropriate advice that can prevent or delay the onset of eye disease.
Sightrisk was established in May 2008 by the Directors: nutrition and vision scientist Dr. John Nolan, ophthalmic consultant Professor Stephen Beatty, and optometrist and physicist Graham O’Regan. In March 2011 Robert Kuchling joined the team as Managing Director.
The Sightrisk AMD Calculator is a unique online analytical tool that assesses a person’s risk of developing age-related macular degeneration.
AMD is the leading cause of blindness in the developed world, and the numbers of people suffering from this disease are expected to double by 2020, due to increasing longevity and growing world population. The socio-economic costs of blindness due to AMD are significant, and the individual with this blinding condition suffers from decreased independence and quality of life. There is no known cure for AMD; however there are established risk factors that, once identified, are modifiable and can help reduce the risk of developing this disease. Our AMD Calculator identifies an individual’s risk factors and provides advice on how to reduce this risk.
