Over 500 Million People Suffer From Eye Disease
Diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, branch retinal vein occlusion, vitreomacular traction, and glaucoma affect hundreds of millions of people worldwide. While some of these conditions don't have an effective treatment option, others require monthly eye injections to reduce disease progression.
PulseMedica is developing a medical device platform that enables safe, effective and non-invasive treatment of various eye diseases. Our platform leverages advanced imaging technology, embedded machine learning and laser technology to precisely diagnose, plan and treat diseased areas within the eye. Our platform will revolutionize existing treatments for eye diseases while also unlocking novel treatment options that currently do not exist.
