Obtaining clear photographic images of the retina is crucial in diagnosing and treating many vision threatening diseases. However, equipment used to obtain retinal images is large and primarily relegated to doctors’ offices. Rochester-based Lumetrics, Inc. plans to change this paradigm with help from collaborators at FEI, Eyeon Therapeutics and ASE Optics Inc. And the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is backing the effort.
One of the most renown trade shows in the medical device industry - Medical Design and Manufacturing West- is rapidly approaching. We're very excited here at Lumetrics as this is one of our biggest events that we participate in. This year, we'll be doing a few different things to highlight some of the ground-breaking technology we've been working so fervently on.
