Reasons to Invest

~400 million people worldwide suffer from various retinal diseases and nearly half of them suffer from AMD (Age-Related Macular Degeneration)
The only self-contained Augmented Reality glasses on the market, with over 40 degrees FOV (Field-of-View), to simulate natural vision!
Eyedaptic has 2 patents granted, 3 trademarks and 12 patents pending for their award winning AR visual aid

*All images are of past prototypes or our production product. Final results may differ.

Overview


Enhancing vision to revitalize life

Eyedaptic CEO, Jay Cormier, founded the company after his grandmother started losing her vision due to the incurable condition, AMD (age-related macular degeneration). Upon further research, he discovered that AMD is the leading cause of vision loss for people over 60, and affects more than 15 million Americans and 170 million people worldwide (source).


Furthermore, there are 400 million people suffering from retinal disease worldwide with 114 million people affected by Diabetic Related Retina Disease (DME & DR) and 98 million who have macular puckering/ scarring. Others suffer from retinal diseases like Stargardt’s Disease and Macular Pucker that also lead to a loss of central vision. (source, source, source)

Having had experience with Augmented Reality in the past, Cormier began to consider whether the technology could provide a solution to AMD. Cormier and his partner/CTO, Dave Watola, did not have medical backgrounds and so they sought the help of two ophthalmologists/retina specialists, Dr. Mitul Mehta and Dr. Brian Kim.


It quickly became clear to all of them that there was a significant need for a solution to AMD. So Cormier and Watola teamed up with the two doctors to found Eyedaptic.


*All images are of past prototypes or our production product. Final results may differ.

The Problem


No cure for the leading cause of age-related blindness

AMD is the leading cause of blindness for people over the age of 60. The disorder affects patients’ central vision, the fine, detailed segment of our vision that is used for reading or using a computer. This makes everyday tasks for sufferers extremely challenging, especially when many of us dependent on our phones, computers and other devices. 

Of the over 400 million people worldwide with various retinal diseases, nearly half of them (approximately 170 million) suffer from some sort of AMD (source) (source). Of the total macular degeneration patient population, it is estimated that roughly 90% suffer from dry AMD, which has no cure or therapy (source).

The other 10% are referred to as Wet AMD, which is treated by several drugs that only slow the progression.

The Solution


AR technology proven to enhance vision!

Eyedaptic has harnessed the power of augmented reality technology to create a pair of glasses that simulate natural vision. Eyedaptic’s EYE2 glasses are the only self-contained Augmented Reality (AR) glasses on the market that capture over 40 degrees of the patients’ FOV (field of view).

*All images are of past prototypes or our production product. Final results may differ.


We also will be launching two new products. The EYE3 will be our new premier model, featuring the highest FOV of any self-contained AR visual aid that we have seen. The EYE4 will serve as our value model and will be priced below our current EYE2 model. This model will be ultra-light, weighing in at just 80 grams that can be connected to your cell phone. 

*All images are of past prototypes or our production product. Final results may differ.


Our glasses have an adaptive user interface for hands-free autonomous usage, as well as a range of controls to customize the user experience. This allows users to function more normally with a more natural viewing experience.

The Market


A billion dollar market opportunity

The retinal disease therapeutics market was valued at $11.04 billion and is projected to reach $21.3 billion by the end of 2026, growing at a CAGR of 8.6% in the forecast period. The global assistive technologies for the visually impaired market is expected to reach $6.57 Billion by 2025. With life expectancy increasing all the time, this issue is bound to become more prevalent, placing increasing pressure on the ophthalmic industry. (source

A comparable industry is that of global hearing aids, which has a similar market size, demographics, and direct consumer payable. The hearing aid market is worth over $8B today and is projected to reach $14.45B by 2026 (source). With a similar business model, and price points, and vision valued 7 times as much as hearing, we believe this is a billion-dollar market opportunity. (source)

Our Traction


Patented Technology and Strategic Partnership with the World Leader in Low Vision Aids

We have already been awarded two patents, three trademarks, and currently have 12 more patent applications pending. Our one-of-a-kind AR visual aid solution enables AMD patients to perform everyday tasks and remain independent. In a clinical study, our participants saw a 5x improvement in task completion when using our product. 

After a clinical study and a beta product release, Eyedaptic launched at the end of 2019 with its current iteration of hardware and software. In March, we announced our partnership with Vispero, the world-wide leader in low-vision aids and other assistive technologies. This provided us increased access to the low vision market.

In addition, we have a new pair of glasses that features enhanced image quality, form factor, and comfort. This product includes a new hardware platform, increased software capability and a redesigned user interface. The EYE3 is in user beta testing now with launch announcement coming soon & the EYE4 is in user benchmarking now with planned launch later in 2021. 

*These testimonials may not be representative of the experiences of other customers and are not a guarantee of future performance or success.

The Business Model


Distributed through MDs and ODs, with subscription model options & high profit margins

Eyedaptic glasses are distributed through low vision specialists, who are specialized optometrists, and also through our partner’s dealer network of low vision distributors. The glasses are sold on average at a price of $3K to $6K (priced in line with hearing aids). Our newer models, such as the EYE4 value model, will implement a monthly subscription option, which brings the upfront cost down to just $1500 with an additional $50 monthly fee for software.

The retailer will potentially make roughly 20% to 30% margin. Cost of Goods is in the $500 to $1500 range, leaving a Gross Margin in the range of 50% to 70%. We also plan to distribute through general optometrists, which will produce similar profit margins.

Our USA pilot partnership with Vispero is one in which they act as our distributor and support partner. This enables quicker servicing of the market and scalability, and lower expense overhead. This creates a lower need for working capital in sales, marketing, and logistics. This can also potentially provide access to additional markets around the world in the future.


Eyedaptic’s current channels for lead generation and sales include direct to consumer advertising and referrals from local doctors. We continue to test the model as we scale our engagement. However, once our product becomes more widely used and supported by MDs and ODs, we aim to develop a direct-to-consumer model, much like that of the hearing aid industry. 

What We Do


Simulating natural vision with ease and comfort!

At Eyedaptic, we make augmented reality (AR) glasses specialized for people with AMD. We first start with open market AR glasses that have satisfactory Field of View (FOV) 

How We Are Different


No other visual aid like ours exists on the market!

The basic concept for a product like ours was first conceived by NASA about 30 years ago. However, wearable electronic technology is relatively new. Until recently, a comfortable, mobile, wearable solution with the computing power to handle advanced image processing and machine learning algorithms simply did not exist.


Our proprietary software, which uses image enhancement, pixel remapping and machine learning, provides both enhanced vision as well as a natural viewing experience. 

*All images are of past prototypes or our production product. Final results may differ.

Our algorithms perform double duty, first analyzing images, then monitoring the embedded motion sensor data to infer the user’s focus of attention. In addition, the software enhances images to help the user see the real world more clearly and optimize their remaining peripheral vision.


Based on our surveys most visual aids on the market today are essentially magnification devices like magnifying glasses or CCTV systems. These only work for close up tasks, and are not hands free for mobility.

Our product is an FDA Class I Exempt device, which does not require FDA approval or clinical trials to go to market. Our visual aid allows for major cost savings and enables a more frequent product update cycle.


We believe based on feedback from our customers that competitors have tried to create similar concepts with Virtual Reality (VR), but the head mounted devices are heavy and cumbersome. Also, they isolate the user from the real world, handicapping the user by cutting off their peripheral vision entirely.

The Vision


We aim to be world leader in wearable visual aids

Eyedaptic’s ultimate mission is to be the leader in our space. We envision being the primary manufacturer of the market-leading wearable visual aid device that simulates natural vision. 

*All images are of past prototypes or our production product. Final results may differ.

OUR LEADERSHIP


A unique blend of expertise in technology, optometry, ophthalmology, engineering and business

CEO, Jay Cormier, and CTO, Dave Watola, are both experienced technology executives. They have had successful careers at both hardware and software companies with multiple successful exits under their belts. Their MD co-founders,  Dr. Mitul Mehta and Dr. Brian Kim, are both retina specialists who see many AMD patients on a daily basis. Both have software and engineering backgrounds to successfully bridge any gaps between the technology and the patient.

Our board of advisors are amongst world leaders in the fields of ophthalmology, optometry, and low vision specialization. All have long, successful track records in helping people with eye conditions. Our board of directors is composed of successful and experienced early-stage CEOs and investors.
