A company established by Aston University’s optometry school, Aston EyeTech, has announced the launch of Eyoto. The company described the new brand as centered around “next generation” eye diagnostic and measurement solutions and confirmed that it will be releasing new products this year.
Aston EyeTech, which recently completed a £5m ($6.7m) Series A investment round, revealed that Eyoto’s product portfolio will include a range of power mapping lensmeters and lens surface inspection tools and binocular autorefractors.
It also features the company's cloud connected mobile diagnostic platform, which integrates portable hardware, artificial intelligence driven diagnostic systems, and large-scale data analytics.
Commenting on the creation of the new brand, CEO of Aston EyeTech, Carl D Francis, said: “All aspects of the optical market – design, retail, manufacturing, and logistics – are undergoing massive change, and there is a strong and growing demand for tools to support and capitalise on that change. Our products take a unique and fresh approach to the field of optometric instrumentation, and the Eyoto brand is underpinned by that freshness.”
The company’s new lens inspection technology will be showcased for the first time at Vision Expo East in New York this March.
