Macular disease impacts almost 1.5 million in the UK, with people of all ages living with the condition. Even though no cure currently exists, treatment may slow down the disease and diminish the severity of vision loss. Therefore, it is essential to raise awareness and recognition to be able to prevent macular disease already on early stages. With many conditions not visible to the naked eye, the created Extended Reality (XR) solution helped understand and learn what it is to live with some of the symptoms, submerging users into a virtual environment where they can live-through realistic real-life challenges that people with macular disease face every day.
This one of a kind unique, impactful immersive XR experience was developed to demonstrate the real-life challenges of people with macular disease and raise awareness of the problem to UK Members of Parliament (MPs) in order to help improve the National Health Service.
Experience was built using the most advanced XR headset, Varjo XR-3, with highest visual fidelity.
