– Ultimeyes : the concept of this application is close to that of GlassesOff, with one exception. Ultimeyes does not target presbyopes, but anyone who wants to improve his vision , especially athletes. If your clients play sports, it may be a good idea to suggest them! Ultimeyes' results are convincing, as the 19 baseball players who tested her could improve their vision by an average of 31%.
