GlakoLens is a spin-off startup developing a non-invasive and disposable smart contact lens that monitors intraocular pressure (IOP) fluctuations for glaucoma patients and people in high-risk groups. The proprietary tech is based on years of research. Glaucoma affects over 70 million people worldwide and is the second leading cause of blindness. It is a chronic condition with no permanent cure. The most prominent and stealthy form of glaucoma is caused by chronic ocular hypertension (high IOP).
