Reflective Eye Test - an eye test using a specially-developed app

Prof. Uri Polat, Bar-Ilan University
Partners: Prof. Yossi Mandel, Bar-Ilan University, and Dr. Israel Shenkar, Israel Aerospace Medicine Institute (IAMI)

Prolonged exposure to microgravity during space missions can damage eyesight and cause Neuro-ophthalmic syndrome. The reported symptoms include degraded vision, changes in the optic nerve, in the retina, and a change in the refractive error. The research during the Rakia space mission, by Bar-Ilan University together with the Israel Aerospace Medicine Institute, is intended to examine the effects of microgravity on visual function, through testing functional vision digitally on a tablet computer. The tests are going to be integrated within existing tried and tested technology under sponsorship of the Cortex Therapeutics (Glassesoff) Company.

“Above us only sky” Ilan Ramon, RIP, 2003

The Rakia Mission is an example of the extraordinary collaboration between a great number of different entities. It is an expression of the values of peace, innovation, leadership and social responsibility. The combination of dreams this mission represents, and the proof that anything is possible - these are a major part of our vision.
