Vasoptic Medical Testing Device to Detect Diabetes-Caused Blindness

March 16, 2013


Early-stage life sciences startup Vasoptic Medical has been testing a hand-held device that can be used by primary care physicians for the early detection of diabetic retinopathy. That’s damage to the retina caused by diabetes that can lead to blindness.


BmoreMedia reports:


The tests, being held at the Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute, are required for federal Food and Drug Administration approval. When done in 2014, the Columbia company will seek FDA clearance to market and sell the device.


While the startup estimates “it will cost $7.5 million to bring the device to market,” each device will sell for around $10,000.
