Overview


Game-changing smart contact lenses


Innovega aims to change the way we see the world by delivering human-friendly, full field of view display eyewear for the Metaverse and for other AR/VR applications. Its patented technologies combine smart contact lenses with lightweight glasses to deliver a combination of style, comfort, and performance that we believe is unmatched by any product from competitors. 


For its launch application, the Innovega team designed a novel eyewear system for patients with visual impairment, including those who are legally blind, and whose quality of life and independence are significantly reduced. Independent testing confirmed that our smart lens and eyewear combination has the ability to restore independence and freedom to patients with visual impairments, and even provide them with an opportunity to see signs and print that demand 20/20 visual acuity.

the problem


Display eyewear lacks a "smart solution"


#1: Successful AR/VR and access to the Metaverse require next generation display eyewear


To deliver a suitable display for VR applications, companies have incorporated large conventional optics into even larger headsets. These bulky, heavy, hot and obtrusive headsets prevent the sort of social interaction and mobility that are at the heart of human needs. 


To deliver AR eyewear, companies have developed challenging waveguides or other optics, and the result is a narrow display that prevents the quality of real-world overlay and blending that users expect or need.


Add to these limitations the fact that today’s VR and AR displays create eye strain and wearers complain of discomfort and headaches. These design challenges and failure to deliver what wearers need or want have derailed the opportunity for substantial growth in AR or VR markets. 


In the fall of 2021, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO Facebook, described his commitment to build the Metaverse, an expansive and immersive digital world in which we will work and play. To achieve this vision, users will require comfortable, lightweight, and extremely powerful AR/VR displays. Innovega’s proprietary contact lens and eyewear designs are engineered to overcome the many challenges that have limited use and acceptance of AR/VR and unless resolved, could hamper the success of Web 3.0.



#2: Inadequate solutions for millions of Visually Impaired, including the Legally Blind


Building the Metaverse may take another few years, but the debilitating impact of vision impairment and legal blindness exists today and its prevalence is growing. Solutions that are currently available to these patients including prescription glasses, contact lenses, and surgery fail to offer the level of real-world magnification and enhancement that they need. Display eyewear offers new potential to assist these patients whose quality of life and independence are greatly affected.


Unfortunately, the fundamental requirement of lightweight, stylish yet high-performing eyewear has not been realized.


We believe that Innovega demonstrates it can deliver eyewear solutions that offer both the necessary high-performance display and lightweight, conventional styling. The problem facing suppliers and patients is evident on the right-hand side of the image below, where a bulky VR headset does not meet the needs of a growing yet substantially underserved market.

the solution


A revolution in how we approach eyewear 


#1: AR/VR and the MetaverseThe intersection of performance and comfort


Innovega uses a combination of conventional eyewear and contact lenses that allow the user a clear view of their real-world while delivering a seamless view of rich media displayed on dual micro-displays embedded in the glasses. The disposable contact lenses and display eyewear were designed, developed, and clinically tested by a world-class team of optometrists, ophthalmologists, optics engineers, and nano-fabrication experts.


This combination is engineered to satisfy the demand for lightweight stylish eyewear and access to high-quality media; and, to deliver high-resolution media with a field of view as great as 110-degrees.


*Images above are prototypes. Commercial development is underway.


Innovega’s novel contact lens and retinal technologies are designed to enable stylish eyewear configurations across the spectrum of Augmented, Virtual, and Metaverse experiences.



*Imagery of glasses are computer generated. Commercial development is underway.


Furthermore, we believe that an ideal eyewear solution must deliver on all 7 of the key features listed below:  


  • Lightweight and Stylish
  • Panoramic Field of View
  • Highest Resolution
  • Vision Correction required by 62% of the U.S. population
  • Prevention of Eyestrain and Headaches
  • Solutions for full range of AR/VR Applications 
  • Integration with the Metaverse ecosystem  


Innovega’s new and revolutionary wearable display platform is engineered to deliver all of these key features and its AR/VR configurations are suitable for high-volume applications for the Metaverse, important and growing vertical applications including for the visually-impaired and for other sensory and cognitive disability patient communities.


#2: Serving the Visually Impaired, including the Legally Blind


The mission and goal is the restoration of the quality of life of tens of millions of patients who suffer from Age-Related Macular Degeneration and similar diseases. Product designers must deliver eyewear with cameras and processors that deliver up to 30 times magnification and present to the patients on a panoramic screen located within the eyewear. Furthermore, the eyewear must be so lightweight and comfortable that it can be worn throughout the day, and enable patients to be fully mobile in order to recover the independence that many have lost. 


Innovega showed promised through independent testing that its combination of smart contact lenses and stylish, lightweight glasses enables patients restored independence and freedom based on a measured and new ability to see signs and print that demand 20/20 acuity.  At the College of Optometry at The Ohio State University, Doctors of Optometry evaluated use of Innovega's smart contact lenses and eyewear for near and distance visual tasks by nine individuals whose vision was impaired. Results were presented at the 2021 ARVO conference. (Cooley et al)

Traction


Our Roadmap


Partnerships  


In February 2022, Innovega issued a worldwide license following receiving a seven-figure financial investment from one of the world’s largest suppliers of aids for patients who suffer from severe visual impairments.


Innovega believes that this capital-efficient licensing model will enable acceleration of the commercialization of its contact lens and eyewear platforms across diverse markets, including those created by companies who are committing to build the Metaverse. 


From Visually Impaired Patients to Metaverse Markets


Innovega plans to sell licenses to global companies who commit to fund, co-develop, manufacture, and supply its combination smart contact lens and glasses designs. Under this model, Innovega expects to earn income from sale of these licenses, from unit royalties based on sale of both eyewear and disposable lenses, and from fees charged by Innovega for technical and clinical consulting. Innovega expects to earn a stream of recurring unit revenue royalties from the sale of contact lenses when they are replaced on a monthly basis.


Innovega will allow these organizations to private-label its technologies and designs, and deliver products to markets they control, under their own brand.


Our licensees are thereby enabled to gain benefit as they avoid the costly and time-consuming process of performing their own intensive research and development, and benefit from the Innovega achievements in securing patents, in the U.S. and International markets. They are able to focus on what they do best, offering world-class solutions and building their reputation and brand. 




Innovega Opportunity Roadmap


The use of Innovega smart contact lenses and eyewear has the potential to quickly improve lifestyles of patients with auditory and cognitive impairments in addition to those with visual impairement. Innovega has already filed a key patent application protecting eyewear systems for use by for the hearing impaired. Innovega is executing a go-to-market strategy that includes launch to meet the needs of the visually impaired, while actively investigating partnerships that could accelerate solutions for patients with other sensory impairments; for workers; and for consumer applications that include healthcare, enterprise, sports, entertainment, and gaming. Each can benefit from the building of a Metaverse that delivers value and capabilities that extend well-beyond real-world experiences


The Innovega team has already demonstrated its ability to deliver on more than $6 million of contracts and brings proven skills in building and selling high-performing businesses.


Market Clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

Why invest


Limitless applications are on the horizon

Innovega recently executed its first license and aims to offer unprecedented benefits to the visually impaired.


*IImagery of glasses are computer generated. Commercial development is underway.


This journey began A DECADE AGO when the team at Innovega patented its clear vision of the future. They did not accept that VR headsets should be ugly, bulky, or uncomfortable, or that AR goggles should limit the wearer's natural view of the world. They could not accept that wearers must suffer headaches due to eyestrain or be restricted in how they performed their normal daily activities. The Innovega team envisioned a new and comfortable way to connect with a next-generation internet, where the wearer's virtual and real worlds would co-exist and always be at-hand.


NEAR THE END OF 2021 Facebook committed to start building the Metaverse, a digital and online space that blends key aspects of the user's virtual and real world. Other media giants began defining their vision for Web 3.0. We believe that these announcements and commitments have removed any doubt that demand for display eyewear will accelerate quickly. 


For these plans to become a reality, these companies will need to deliver light-weight, highest-performance display eyewear, allowing subscribers to access and navigate these new digital worlds. 


Built and managed by scientists, engineers, and industry leaders, Innovega is just getting started. We have in hand a portfolio of 54 patent cases and plans that extend far beyond the application for the vision impaired. We intend to offer our display eyewear to other global companies and will view companies that will leverage the Metaverse as future customers and partners, rather than competitors. This is just the beginning. 


Our StartEngine crowdfund will allow Innovega to access the resources it needs to drive its collaboration with other partners. We invite each of you to participate in this next phase of growth. 


The future is Innovega.

Mark Zuckerberg’s interview with CNBC’s Jim Cramer

20 days ago

 


Opportunity to Empower the Metaverse


The metaverse is an immersive, digital world that META, Apple, Microsoft and others have committed to build as they lead the transition to the next phase of the internet. Conventional 2D mobile device screens will allow each of us a taste of what is certainly in our future, but since the metaverse is immersive and 3-dimensional, the clear vision is for users to wear comfortable, stylish smart glasses or contact lenses (and in our case, “both”).


Few understood the scale intended by those who will fund building of the metaverse. Jim Cramer of CNBC recently spoke with Mark Zuckerberg and asked him for his vision. Mark described that by the end of this decade, he expects “a billion people in the metaverse doing hundreds of dollars of commerce”. If other global OEMs share this, we can expect the metaverse to deliver a trillion dollars of revenue.


Innovega fully embraces Mark’s vision where he sees us working, learning and being entertained in this new connected, virtual environment. Since in the first quarter of 2022, META platforms had 3.64 billion monthly active users and their other application, WhatsApp, reported 2 billion users in 2020, Mark’s vision of one billion users seems highly plausible.


This update from Mark Zuckerberg is highly important to Innovega. We are beginning to plan which of these OEMs will be first to drive demand for eyewear systems and which we should approach to discuss potential future partnerships.

blind. This is the first commercial licensing agreement for Innovega’s next-generation display 

eyewear system. 


The Innovega licensing model allows the licensee the opportunity to manufacture and distribute 

Innovega’s display eyewear. This collaboration follows a previously executed Letter of Intent, 

along with receipt of a substantial investment in Innovega. The licensee’s name is currently 

confidential.


“We feel this license is a validation of the potential of our innovative display eyewear system,” said 

CEO and Co-Founder, Steve Willey. “Through our licensing model, we outsource manufacturing 

and commercialization to an expert supplier, while allowing the Innovega team to remain focused 

on innovation. We believe this model will deliver maximum value to our shareholders.”


Innovega has raised more than $5M from its SEC-qualified Regulation A offering of up to $15M.

We are excited to be off the starting block and generating lots of interest from the West Coast StartEngine community.  

This campaign is a continuation of the financing we started last year when we raised more than $5M. We paused so we could list with West Coast-based StartEngine and offer the same investment opportunity to its more than 700,000 investors. 

Minimum investment is just $498. Please join us now so we can maintain our momentum and deliver on our big 2022 targets.
