Calgary, Alberta – TheNewswire – October 11, 2022 – Ocumetics Technology Corp. (“Ocumetics” or the “Company”) (TSXV:OTC) (OTC:OTCFF) (FRA:2QBO) hosted its first Medical Advisory Board (MAB) meeting on September 29, 2022, prior to the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology in Chicago, IL. The MAB will be chaired by Ocumetics’ Chief Medical Officer, Doyle Stulting, MD, PhD, and supported by a group of world renown key external experts who attended the meeting. “This was a significant event for Ocumetics to gather together our potential investigators, as we prepare for the upcoming clinical trials,” said Dr. Mark Lee, CEO of Ocumetics.
The design of the Ocumetics bionic lens was revealed for the first time to ophthalmologists outside of the Company. A discussion ensued of the potential of the lens for providing both distance and near vision and its ability to rapidly accommodate and disaccommodate. MAB member, Dr. B. J. Dupps commented, “It was a very stimulating meeting.”
“The Medical Advisory Board provided a fascinating and informative discussion of Ocumetics’ lens technologies, both now and in the future,” said Ocumetics Chief Scientific Officer & Founder, Dr. Garth Webb. Another MAB member, Dr. Francis Price, Jr, noted “We are fortunate to live in a time where we have access to new technology allowing us to see and function better. For most of human history, people just accepted they would gradually go blind as they grew older.“
