The problem we solve:
Over 400 Million people in the world, those with Diabetes, have to inflict pain on themselves multiple times every day in order to live a healthy life. In addition to the pain, they are required to endure addition expense by having to continuously purchase strips and lances, adding insult to injury.
Shouldn't there be a better way?
About our solution:
Our solution employes two techniques:
The patient simply holds the GlucoSight to their eye for 8 seconds, we record the video, analyze the results and give them an indication as to whether their glucose level is healthy or not.
There is a lot of lighting magic and proprietary software that we had to develop, but the pupillary reaction curve allows us to derive the patients glucose range.
Progress to date:
At this point we are pre-market. The IP has been filed, data collection is ongoing, hardware and software are on continuous innovation/quality cycles, and paths to market both domestically and internationally, direct and partnerships are being actively pursued.
We are filing the initial paperwork for the FDA and will be launching a study with the Department of Endocrinology at a reputable Boston-based hospital and medical school in August and should have results very quickly as the GlucoSight feeds the resulting data into our cloud servers, allowing us immediate access to the data.

Early detection and ongoing maintenance are crucial to the longevity and health of someone with diabetes. Many of the complications arise when the patient does not properly monitor their blood sugar as prescribed. Unfortunately the cost and pain associated with traditional lance-based methods act as a detractor, a deterrent to the patients daily routine monitoring requirements.
With a GlucoSight, we remove the negative (pain and cost) stimuli associated with monitoring one's blood sugar. We have had countless individuals ask us how to get a GlucoSight. They want relief, we all want to better outcomes, and a pain-free lifestyle.
Do you wish your patients managed their diabetes more consistently and reliably? Do you wish you could remotely monitor their efforts AND experience the effects on the physiology? Are you concerned for your patient’s overall health due to their poor monitoring habits?
At GlucoSight, our intent is to drive better outcomes by making the process of monitoring blood glucose levels pain-free. Imagine the ability of a patient to simply look into a small, mobile-phone attached device and in matter of seconds know if they are hyper- or hypoglycemic. At the same time, these results, and physiological information, including actual video of their eyes, is readily available to you via your laptop or phone?
All of this is potentially possible with your donation. Help us make better diabetic outcomes a reality!
We know every member of your team cares about the health of your patients, but we also know it is a daily challenge to keep the cost of healthcare in check. We are here to help.
With Medicare reimbursement cuts on the horizon, we can help reduce the cost of monitoring glucose levels and achieve better outcomes for your diabetic patients by eliminating the costs of lances, strips, excessive lab tests, and additional services due to poor glucose monitoring. With an 8 second video, we can help your staff work with your patients to easily and effectively monitor their diabetes. The time, cost, and long term complications that your hospital deals with every day might become a thing of the past.
Donate and help us, help you!
Imagine how GlucoSight effects all three of these areas; we can screen earlier and faster with less education; we can remove the costs of lances, strips, nursing time; we can increase outcomes due to easier monitoring. All with a simple mobile-device, a cellphone, and software, but with none of the headaches that go with producing, packing, and shipping sterile medical devices.
Add to this cloud-based access to patient data and data analytics. Every data element and image collected by GlucoSight securely resides in the cloud where healthcare professionals can provide ongoing treatment adjustments. Not only does the patient benefit but so does their physician and fellow researchers.
The market is changing. Companies, like GlucoSight, are racing for better, less costly, less painful, monitoring tools while others are striving for better treatment with innovations like the artificial pancreas. With tens of billions of dollars on the line, companies must either innovate or watch others cut into their bottom line. GlucoSight is poised to be a technology that will allow existing (or potential) market players to stay in the game by offering less expensive solutions to their customers, and better data to their researchers.
