Minute by minute eye health tracking will completely change how clinicians treat patients. Clinicians will use our technology to review summary statistics based on large data sets collected during daily life. Our core focus is on glaucoma, the leading cause of irreversible blindness, because it's hard to manage. Regular maintenance of intraocular pressure (IOP) is the current standard of care, and there is no cure for any blindness caused by glaucomatous damage. By tracking intraocular pressure (IOP) continuously throughout the day, ophthalmologists and optometrists will finally have answers to questions like:
Are patients remembering to use daily medications?
Did the eye pressure exceed a preset threshold?
Which treatments are working and at what time of day?
Is the the patient experiencing eye pressure spikes during the day?
Is the surface of the eye indicating any health anomalies?
Our approach is unique. Our patent-pending technology is the only one of its kind to track eye health and seamlessly integrate into one's lifestyle. Our sensing technology is concealed into attractive eyeglass frames. Data and charging occur wirelessly with minimal effort by the user. And our cloud-based system does even not require the patient to have a smartphone.
Summer 2020 is our target launch date for our research product, which will allow industry and university researchers to capture data that was never thought possible: continuous ocular surface images all day long with no impact to the subject's daily life. In fact, they might forget they are part of a research study! We are aiming for 2022 for the release of our clinical version, which will utilize cloud-based computer processing of the imagery to provide the clinicians with IOP history and trends.
