The Cure For Health Blindness

In 2006, O2Amp scientists were the first to show that modern human eyes don't just see red, they see red in exactly the manner required to detect the oxygen level in blood. As was first noted by J. Dalton in 1798, without this peculiar sensitivity, crucial health-related color signals become almost invisible:

  • Emotion - pain, fear, fatigue, anger, attraction.
  • Blood flow - vein location, vasculature, bruising, cyanosis, pallor.
  • Sickness - shock, exhaustion, jaundice, nausea, erythema, rashes, inflammation.
  • Contamination - distinguishing blood, bile, mud, mucus, infection, and feces.

We believe this "red-sense" is a relatively recent genetic adaptation. In essence, about 87% of us are mutants. The remaining 13% who still lack this power (to varying degrees) includes the 5% who are red-green colorblind.

Oxy-Iso lenses change the way the eye computes color, by pushing the spectrum in the same direction as the genetic adaptation. No matter how good their color vision is before putting them on, wearing O2Amp lenses gives medical professionals an instant improvement in health-related color perception.

"I wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed using your eyewear, especially the Oxy-Iso glasses. I now use them in all of my leg vein procedures . Being color blind makes finding deeper (reticular) cutaneous veins a challenge; the Oxy-Iso eyewear makes them much easier to see... We actually have the Christie Vein Viewer (one of the IR devices) in our office... Although it is a very cool product, it does markedly alter the appearance of veins and the treatment process itself. While I haven't used the IR device much for sclerotherapy, I use my Oxy-Iso's every single time." - Daniel Friedmann, MD, Cosmetic Dermatologic Surgery

"This is exciting. I have not been able to see colors my entire life... They really work. I recommend them." - Cary M. Silverman, MD, ophthalmic surgeon, Eyecare 20:20. Video review.

"I had to try them, working in the Dental field, colors are very important in many aspects of my practice. They vary from instruments identification, diagnosis of the oral cavity, and many other aspects. I went from the muted colors that I was used to all my life, to what I perceive as a more bold, and brighter red and greens. To me the darker red shades, like maroons and burgandy colors are more lighter with the oxy-iso on. I went from not seeing any numbers on the online color blindness tests, to seeing most of them. It has been stated that there may be some limitations of these online test due to screen settings and ambient light. But going from seeing nothing to almost all of them is truly remarkable to me." - DKH, DDS, Glen Cove

"After 20+ years of medical education, I had a healthy skepticism about these glasses. I mean, how can you "cure" color-blindness, my cone cells have a mutation and my brain has learned to adapt. My eyes simply can't absorb light at those frequencies. But, I was intrigued. As a surgeon, being color blind has not affected me as much as you might think, texture is very important, as is consistency, and I think I rely on those cues all the time. However, I do have a problem telling if something is bile-stained versus just bloody, and dark bloody emesis I could only tell by the smell. But as an art lover, and flower lover, being color blind is just annoying. Not to mention trying to shop at places like J. Crew where all the stupid colors are like, "stone" and "sledge". What? // Anyway, I bought these on a lark, and OH MY GOD, THEY WORK!!! I only get 1 right on the Ishihara color blindness plate test (red-green and some blue-yellow deficiencies), but with these glasses, I got more than half right! It makes everything brighter and so much more intense! I scrolled through a website of Impressionist paintings and it was incredible! Beautiful!! I can see red flowers on trees now!! I can see the red on birds' wings!! it's actually almost overwhelming, I don't wear them very often because it makes me a little sad that I've lived 44 years with a muted palette. I haven't tried them in the OR yet, but I'm on call Wednesday. . . Makes me wish I'd invented or invested." - Dr. Marie Crandall, Associate Professor of Surgery, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Medical Diagnostic Eyewear

Featuring our flagship Oxy-Amp Diagnosis-enhancement eyewear for medical practitioners. Oxy-Amp lenses boost your natural perception of numerous blood-flow related health signals, including vein location, vasculature, bruising, cyanosis, pallor, rashes, and erythema. Not an infra-red imaging device, Oxy-Amp lenses enhance what you can see in the normal visible spectrum. Distinct advantages including durability, dual use, low cost, ANSI Z87.1 protection, hands-free, white light, and its ability to exploit one's normal clinico-perceptual sense. Suite also includes Hemo-Iso (bruise-finder), and Oxy-Iso (vein-finder) eyewear.

How it works The Oxy-Amp works by blocking the narrow spectral bands that interfere with your natural ability to see blood oxygen level under the skin. (patents pending)

"I have had no eye-strain after about 4 hours surgery with [Oxy-Amp] glasses. I could see the operation view well, it looks like [my vision is] compensated with Photoshop." - Dr. Kei Nomura, Chief of Center for Brain and Spine Surgery, Aoyama General Hospital

"The glasses are a great hit with the staff on the Msed mobile hospital unit. During the height of [Hurricane] Sandy, we successfully delivered a preterm baby at 35 weeks in a church. I used the [Oxy-Amp] glasses to detect oxygenation as the child came out and it helped prevent intubation knowing that vital information. The story made it to the news as well as the Discovery Channel which just filmed a documentary on how the innovation and technology of the mobile hospital." - Jason Steinfeld, Registered Respiratory Therapist

"A car accident victim complained in the ER of chest and abdomen pain, and although no bruising was apparent, with the Hemo-Iso glasses one could clearly see the bruised impression of the seat belt on her chest and abdomen." - Jake Youren, Saint Alphonsus Medical Center

"The small surface vessels seem to stand out nicely and when doing quick scans for veins it is quite helpful. The darker shade [Oxy-Iso] is much more functional in the back of the well lit ambulance and as advertised." - Dan Ruegsegger, American Medical Response

"[My] students can watch real blood flow, by blocking and squeezing veins, easier than bare eyes." - Dr. Tohru Murakami, Professor of Anatomy, Gunma University Graduate School of Medicine

"I have truly integrated them as a 1st line tool for technical professionalism and safe patient care. I have been using your O2Amp medical optics as I assist, on the average 3 cardiac catheterization procedures a day for over two months now, and they have become an essential tool for visualizing and determining cardiac anatomy as well as any deficiencies. The clarity and magnification they provide is an asset to patient care while reducing eye strain and fatigue. In addition my success with 1st time intravenous therapy insertions has become even more efficient with O2Amp medical optic's enhanced visualizations of vein color." - Warren Mackey R.N., Boise/Meridian Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, St. Luke's Health Services

"Used the Iso's on a gentleman, couldn't feel on either arm. Was able to really see the basillic vein of the L antecubital. Was a successful draw. Apparently this man was a very hard draw. Patient stated: 'technology is a beautiful thing.' He told me he hates having his blood drawn. He left very happy. I feel like I have a little cheat and its wonderful! =D" - Tara Roberts, ASCP certified phlebotomy technician at a St. Lukes Clinic
