Say Hi to Colsia
Smart device for Safe & Simple Contact lens Insertion & Removal
We are a medtech startup, solving decades old challenges of both contact lens users, and contact lens industry
More than 50% of contact lens users switch back to glasses, majority of them in the first two months of usage. The top reason for dropout is reported to be discomfort with 41.9% to 52.9% users.
One out of 3 of contact lens users gets an infection, that requires a doctor’s visit. Serious eye infections that can lead to blindness affects 1 out of every 500 contact lens users.
The process of contact lenses usage has been the same since the first lens was created, and it is the cause of both challenges
CONTACT LENS INSERTION
To insert lenses, users are instructed to pick them up with their fingers, and place them in the eye
CONTACT LENS REMOVAL
To remove the lenses, users pick the lens with two fingers, squese the lens, and pull it ot of their eye
CONTACT LENS RENEWAL
It is common and unsafe practice for the users, not to replace the lens with new one, when the lens usage expires
We want to make contact lens usage safe, simple and smart, that is why we have created Colsia
Colsia is ergonomically designed digital device. It mimics natural movements of insertion and removal of contact lenses.
Without ever touching eyes with their fingers, users of the device can insert or remove their contact lenses.
Device is in sync with Colsia mobile application, tracking usage and notifying or even ordering new lenses for the user
