Our Technology

Portable retinal imager examines retinal microvasculature

We are developing a low-cost, easy-to-use, portable retinal imager designed to non-invasively capture physiological information from the retinal microvasculature, providing a quantitative means of monitoring the progression of various metrics indicative of ophthalmic and systemic disease. Our approach eliminates the need for pupil dilation or contrast dyes and allows for important eye exams to be performed in primary care and community care environments. By positioning our devices in primary care centers, healthcare facilities, pharmacies, and community clinics worldwide, we hope to increase access to high-quality, essential care for millions of at-risk and underserved individuals while reducing the cost of care associated with eye exams.

Vasculature

Initial Focus

Millions of people in the world suffer from diabetes.

Nearly 29 million Americans (9% of the population) have diabetes, with an additional 7 million undiagnosed and 79 million at risk. Globally, more than 371 million people currently suffer from diabetes, a population that is expected to grow to well over 550 million by 2030.

World Diabetes Statistics

Approximately 1 in 3 diabetics currently suffer from diabetic retinopathy

DR is a medical condition that results from prolonged mismanagement of diabetes which manifests as damage to the small blood vessels (or micro-vasculature) of the retina, and is the most frequent cause of blindness among adults. Each year, nearly 65,000 Americans progress to the late stages of the condition and as many as 25,000 lose their eyesight. Through early detection, however, healthcare providers can better manage a patient’s diabetes, preventing the vascular damage that occurs as DR progresses.

  • Diabetics receiving recommended annual eye exam 50%
  • Diabetics who have never had an eye exam 36%
The primary reasons cited for the failure to obtain an annual eye exam are:

  • inconvenience
  • cost
  • lack of symptoms

Prevention of vision loss associated with diabetes is an area of significant need that may benefit from the use of our technology.
