Adaptica was founded in 2009 as a spin-off of the University of Padova, Italy specialising in adaptive optics and optoelectronics applied to Industry and astronomical research.

Adaptica leverages on its technological know-how and competences in astronomy to move from a better vision of the universe and its galaxies towards exploring vision and the human eye.

Adaptica soon expanded into health-care, with a particular focus on vision and eye-care. It develops and manufactures smart, mobile, easy to use diagnostic pieces of equipment that are currently distributed in over 40 countries worldwide.
