Ophthalight Digital Solutions Inc.
Ophthalight Digital Solutions' mission is to help people keep their vision by making basic eye care more accessible while providing eye care professionals with advanced mobile health tools that will allow an increase in the frequency, speed, and profitability of eye exams.
O-Glass is the first product being offered by Ophthalight Digital Solutions. O-Glass provides an accurate, portable automated eye test for ophthalmologists and optometrists who need to diagnose and follow up optic neuropathy in patients. It replaces what is commonly referred to as the Swinging Flashlight or Margus Gun test, a qualitative test whose measurements are subjective, prone to human errors, and troublesome to follow up accurately. The prototype of O-Glass has been validated through interviews with more than 60 MDs in several countries and has won top honors in several scientific innovation competitions.
Ophthalight designs and manufactures portable smart ophthalmic diagnostic/monitoring equipment and software which provides a simple, digital alternative to conventional eye exams that are performed nearly 105 million times per year in the US. In 2016 the total market for ophthalmic diagnostic and monitoring devices is approximately $33B globally. In addition, the valuable data being collected over time will open new revenue streams as new clients such as insurance and cosmetic companies, and government, will have access to updated data regarding the diseases and their local and global prevalence. Moreover, accurate follow up procedures enable researchers in universities and pharmaceutical companies to study the effect of different treatments on the progression of various diseases.
