The Inception of the Eye Machine and Its Mission
The Eye Machine, LLC was formed in 2014 to develop and manufacture a medical device to treat macular degeneration. The goal is to lease these devices to optometrists and other medical professionals in order for them to help their patients with age-related macular degeneration.
The National Eye Institute notes that over 10 million people in the United States have a form of age-related macular degeneration. Also, they indicate that more than 1 in 10 people over the age of 70 have experienced some vision loss to the disease. With this many people suffering from loss of vision, The Eye Machine, LLC needed to step forward and take a stance to help the movement toward a solution. Our unique technology is at the forefront of ophthalmologic science.
Unfortunately, age-related macular degeneration is the number one cause of legal blindness in adults over the age of 50 years. As the “baby boomers” age, there will be an increase the number of people with AMD. By honing our new technology, we will meet a growing population of people with macular degeneration.
Our team here at The Eye Machine, LLC brings a variety of disciplines to the company. Michael Samuel M.D., our Medical Advisor. He is nationally known for research, clinical work, and surgery. He was a part of a team that performed the first surgical implant of stem cells for dry macular degeneration. We are fortunate to have him as our medical advisor for The Eye Machine. Dr. George O’Clock, Ph.D. is our Chief Science Advisor. His extensive experience in technologies that successfully treats eye disease makes him the ideal advisor for this mission.
While the technology still needs to complete a regulatory approval process with the FDA, it is expected to be the future of treating patients with AMD.
