**About C. Light Technologies**
Boston-based C. Light Technologies, Inc. is a neurotech and artificial intelligence company that tracks retinal (back of the eye/front of brain) movements less than 1/100th of a human hair. With their own proprietary scanning laser ophthalmoscope–the “Retitrack”–C. Light analyzes miniature eye movements with AI, a very different approach to eye tracking from other technologies on the market which measure pupil movement. C. Light’s device is 120x more accurate than pupil trackers sold commercially today and 1000x more than webcams and phone cameras. The scan takes 10 seconds with no dilation or patient discomfort required.

C. Light’s biomarker platform could transform how we assess neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis, as well as brain injuries such as concussions, allowing for early detection (when more treatment options could be available), and more objective ways to measure if therapies are working or not.
