This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

OcuSciences Inc.'s OcuMet Beacon is a noninvasive and rapid diagnostic screening tool for retinal disease. The current ophthalmic standard of care, optical coherence tomography, evaluates structural change in retinal thickness or swelling after retinal damage has occurred, but OcuMet can provide a level of functional testing before damage occurs, which is especially important for latent diabetics or patients undiagnosed for retinal diseases.
