TORONTO, May 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Eyecarrot Innovations Corp ("Eyecarrot" or the "Company") (TSX-V: EYC) (OTCQB: EYCCF) is pleased to announce its participation at the International Sports Vision Association's 2nd annual show at the Zermatt Resort in Park City, Utah. Being a Platinum Sponsor of the event, Eyecarrot takes great pride in being able to contribute to such a tremendous association helping to further the importance of sports vision science. Eyecarrot invited Bryce Salvador to contribute as the keynote speaker of the event, relaying his personal message on the success and importance of sports vision. This discipline is helping all types of athletes reach higher levels of performance through the enhancement of their visual skills. Research now validates that athletes who use their visual system to its maximum potential will increase overall performance, gain a competitive edge, and decrease their likelihood of suffering from concussions in the future.
As active participants during the show, Eyecarrot was able to demonstrate early prototypes of the Binovi Touch Saccadic Fixator with great success, receiving positive feedback from the sports vision marketplace.
"The field of sports vision science is still in its infancy. We are now in a time where testing, training, and most importantly data are front and centre to what athletes have access to in terms of performance enhancing tools. With the new Binovi Touch Saccadic Fixator, in tandem with the Binovi Touch Mobile First Multi Platform App, Bluetooth control, and connectivity to our Microsoft Azure API, we are significantly enhancing a tool that has been tried and tested since the 1970s, and will now provide measurable data on many of the most important vision skills used by athletes today", Commented CEO, Adam Cegielski.

After a cochlear concussion had left me sidelined for an entire hockey season, vision therapy along with sports vision training alleviated my visual symptoms and played a crucial role in my return to playing hockey in the NHL. Not only did the therapy help me recover from this injury, but it also enabled me to see the game in a way that I hadn't before. In joining Eyecarrot, I have the opportunity to use my first-hand experience to contribute to the development of Eyecarrot's high performance products for athletes and non-athletes alike".
