HISTORY & TEAM

We believe that nobody should be left behind because of dyslexia.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make accessible to everyone a reading assessment tool, with measurable results, which will help improve the quality of the treatment process.

The eyeRadar assessment tool is the result of a 10 years combined effort of a multidisciplinary team of passionate scientists from world class universities such as Harvard, Columbia, and Cornell.

It is a reliable, objective, and fast reading assessment tool which quantifies the severity of the problem numerically. If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.

The eyeRadar history

When in 2010, Dr. Ioannis Aslanides and his wife took their young son, Minas, to see an ophthalmologist in the island of Crete island in Greece, they realized that he suffered for years with undiagnosed dyslexia, facing severe reading difficulties, that grips almost everyone who suffers from this learning disorder.

That is the reason why Dr. Aslanides set out to end the interminable frustration and marginalization his son faced.

Dr. Aslanides gathered a multidisciplinary team of doctors, engineers, and research scientists and they created RADAR, which stands for Rapid Assessment for Dyslexia and Abnormalities in Reading. It is a platform to screen children who might otherwise be diagnosed late, or who might go undiagnosed altogether.

2007

Our journey begins.

Our company, Optotech Ltd. is funded and becomes the first eye tracking company in Greece.

First, small scale, research with dyslexic students.

Dr. Ioannis Aslanides, driven by a family incident, decides to start a project about digitalizing dyslexia and reading difficulties using eye tracking tech.

2010

First publication on DYSLEXIA.

We publish our first paper on peer-reviewed journal DYSLEXIA.

Our team acquires a domestic and an international patent for RADAR Method.

2016

First research study with English dyslexic studies in UK.

Our team assesses our first English-speaking population and becomes officially a potential “universal & international screening method for reading difficulties”.

2017

Proud to publish another research study of our team in peer-reviewed journal PLOS ONE.

Our multi-disciplinary team publishes the results of our research study on dyslexics and non-dyslexics students.

2018

International collaborations: Harvard & Cardiff MET.
