Chart-Topping ULTIMEYES® App Now Available for iPhone and Android Devices

App Scientifically Shown to Improve Vision is Downloadable Now in the Apple App Store for the iPad and iPhone, and Android Phones via Google Play and Amazon's Appstore for Android

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - April 18, 2014) - Carrot Neurotechnology, Inc. announced today that its popular vision-enhancing interactive game App, ULTIMEYES®, has launched for all iOS and Android platforms. Previously available only for the PC, Mac and iPad, anyone with an iPhone or Android device can now improve their vision…at home or on the go. Improve the clarity of your vision and ability to see in poor lighting, lessen the need for reading glasses, and improve vision for sports and other everyday activities for a better lifestyle. From athletes who want to sharpen their "perfect vision" to people who struggle with low vision issues, ULTIMEYES® has been scientifically shown to help increase vision capabilities via perceptual learning.

"We are excited to bring the ULTIMEYES® App to mobile users around the world. We have received an enormous amount of positive feedback from users who are experiencing better vision, with some noticing improvement in as little as three weeks," said Adam Goldberg, CEO of Carrot Neurotechnology, Inc. "We want everyone with access to a PC/Mac, Android and Apple device to be able to benefit from this easy-to-use app that works as a competitive and fun game."

"Having worked with professional teams and individual athletes on vision training for the past 41 years, I'm always looking for new tools to add to my regimen when trying to give the pros an edge," said Dr. Bill Harrison, O.D. of SlowtheGameDown in Laguna Beach, CA. "When I heard about the results that the UC Riverside baseball program had with ULTIMEYES, we reviewed it and decided to add it to our sports vision program."

The most notable study1 was conducted by the University of California, Riverside in collaboration with the UCR Highlanders baseball team. On average, the visual acuity increased 31%, with seven of the players' vision improving to 20/7.5 using a standard Snellen chart. Normal vision using the Snellen chart is 20/20. The improved vision resulted in batting performance strikeouts decreasing 4.4% and increasing the number of runs created. Using Bill James'2 formula for runs created, the researchers calculated that the team created 41 more runs, resulting in 4 to 5 additional wins for the season. Looking at other standard measures of offensive performance (Batting Average, Slugging Percentage, On Base Percentage, Walks, and Strike Outs), in every case UCR's year-over-year improvements were substantially greater (at least 3X) than the rest of the league.

ULTIMEYES® is an easy-to-use integrated app that uses a series of special game-like exercises that stimulate brain plasticity to make visual processing more efficient. Brain plasticity is the brain's mechanism that allows us to acquire new skills or improve upon the ones we already have, including vision. The program should be used four times per week for eight weeks, and each session is only 25 minutes long. Though results vary from person to person, on average, ULTIMEYES® users that have participated in ULTIMEYES studies could read one or two lines better on the Snellen eye chart and experienced a 100% increase in contrast sensitivity. Studies have been conducted with high performance athletes, law enforcement agencies, and people of all ages, genders and vision capabilities. Additional studies looking at other vision-related issues and applications are already underway. For more information on ULTIMEYES® please visit www.ultimeyesvision.com and www.youtube.com/ultimeyes.
