    MistGo

    A game changing experience

    • Easy to use
    • High comfort
    • Right delivery
    • Right dose
    • Every time

    Conventional eye drop bottles are inaccurate, ineffective and inconvenient. People suffering from severe, chronic eye conditions have for too long been forced to accept an unsatisfactory treatment paradigm. That is why we invented MistGo.

     

    MistGo is a truly revolutionary ophthalmic drug administration system. It is the first eye care technology to consistently secure the right dose and the right delivery into the cornea of the eye for full exploitation of the drug and optimal treatment effect. On top, MistGo is extremely easy and comfortable to use whether you are young or senior, at home or on the go. 

     

    MistGo creates an exceptional experience that motivates people with an eye disease to complete their treatment. Higher patient compliance translates into improved eye health and life quality.

    This superior performing technology is compatible with any ocular liquid, also preservative free that can be atomized. Leading ophthalmologist and frontrunning industry players have already named MistGo “a true game changer in eye care”.

    Features

    Eye care redefined

    Unique dose control

    A high precision micro pump consistently meter a dose of only 6µl matching the optimal absorption capacity of the cornea and causing no excess liquid to irritate the skin. An eye drop bottle dose is 30-60µl and thus very ineffective. 

    Eye aiming interface

    An eye aiming interface makes it easy to accurately and precisely instill the mist into the cornea without having to tilt the head in an unnatural position or to accidentally touch the eye with the device.

    Gentle mist

    The internal geometry of the nozzle is optimized to vaporize the liquid into a fine mist, which feels comfortable and soothing in the eye compared to a single, dense drop.

    Ergonomic activation

    A two-step intuitive activation procedure is designed to enable users with reduced strength in their hands to easily load and release the mist. This is particularly an advantage to seniors and children.

    Instant dose release

    Mechanically compressed air is used to propel and gently deliver the complete dose into the cornea, before the eye can even make a blink.

    Long durability

    An airtight cartridge contains the preservative free liquid to ensure its durability for minimum 6 months from the moment the device has been put into use. A smart indicator on the back of the device shows the level of liquid left, so you know when it is time to restock.  

    Functionality

    How it works

    Opportunity

    Make a sustainable impact

    MistGo targets people of all ages suffering from severe and chronic eye conditions such as dry eye disease (DED), glaucoma and allergies. When left untreated or not treated correctly, these eye conditions all result in deteriorating eye health, worst case in blindness, and reduced life quality for the individual. This again bears significant costs to health economies and society at large.

     

    MistGo offers people dependent on eye medication an easy way to treat their eye condition optimallly for best therapeutic effect. The effectiveness of MistGo even makes it cost competitive globally to the conventional eye drop bottle, and it allows the ophthalmic industry to optimize the level of active ingredients and introduce novel ocular medication for entirely new treatment possibilities. That is good news for the individual, for society and for business.

    Nordic design

    Simple.
    Basic.
    Functional.

    With our base in Denmark, we have been inspired by Nordic design principles in the look and feel of MistGo. The design is simple, basic and functional making it a timeless favorite, easy to bring and use on the go or at home. 

    When it comes to color, print and logo options to fit different markets and user segments, the sky is the limit. 

    Sustainability

    There is
    no planet B

    At EYE-GO, we care for the planet and the people living on it. By enhancing the lives of people suffering from chronic eye conditions, we also improve the resource efficiency of ocular drug production. When applying MistGo as your ophthalmic drug administration system, no liquid is wasted meaning less carbon emission per treatment to the benefit of the environment.

    All components inside MistGo is made of recyclable materials. Under current regulations, we are unfortunately not able to exploit the opportunity to recycle the components. In the meantime, it is worth noting that the same amount of recyclable plastic is used per treatment with MistGo as with conventional drop bottles for eye care.

      Danish Business Award

      EYE-GO is proud to receive the Business Award 2021 from the Municipality of Rudersdal in Denmark. EYE-GO is awarded for entrepreneurship with great growth potential.

       

      Press release from Rudersdal Municipality:

      “EYE-GO is an entrepreneurial company with a revolutionizing innovation and a great potential. EYE-GO has developed the eye care technology MistGo®, which can replace traditional eye care bottles and improve the quality of life for people suffering from eye conditions.”

       

      Henrik Nagel, CEO of EYE-GO, states: “EYE-GO has a dream to improve the quality of life of people worldwide suffering from chronic eye conditions. We believe MistGo® can disrupt the way people take their eye-medication. No more hassle with eye drop bottles, which are often difficult and uncomfortable to use, and which lead to over-medication – simply because of the size of the liquid drop. MistGo® is easy and comfortable to use and only dispenses the precise dose absorbable by the eye in a gentle mist quicker than you can blink. With this, we make it easier to follow a treatment plan to the benefit of patients, practitioners and the society.”

       

      EYE-GO is a start-up company located at DTU Science Park close to Copenhagen with a functional prototype tested by professionals and users. In the near future EYE-GO will add to the team to speed up the product development and identify pharma partners to go to market.

      September 1st 2021

      Strong preference for mist delivery

      During the summer, EYE-GO teamed up with the Department of Ophthalmology at the University Hospital in Copenhagen to conduct a Comfort study of the MistGo® technology. 20 patients aged 40-90 years and suffering from dry eye disease with severe to mild symptoms participated. The results were striking and univocal. The study confirmed a strong preference of patients for our mist delivery over drop delivery from an eye drop bottle.

       

      Commonly cited reasons for high scores in favor of the mist delivery with MistGo® were:

      “I feel the liquid is distributed better and more effectively in the eye with the mist.”
      “My eyes feel better lubricated with the mist.”
      “The mist leaves no excess liquid in my face or running down my cheeks.”
      “The mist dose seems more optimal and therefore also more economic.”
      “With the mist delivery I have peace of mind and feel reassured that my eyes have been treated correctly”.

       

      To learn more about the study and scores, contact Henrik Nagel on hna@eye-go.com.

      May 1st 2021

      Touch and test the real thing

      EYE-GO is happy to announce that we have developed
      the first fully functional prototype of MistGo®. This milestone achievement is in line with the technical development project.

       

      It means that partners can now touch and feel the right thing and even test MistGo® on the skin with a simple saline solution.

      Global press release

      Disrupting eye treatment

      Danish MedTech start-up disrupts the global market for eye treatment: Many challenges are associated with the conventional eye drop bottle. The global ophthalmic industry has long pushed for a way to better deliver medication to the eye. Now, the Danish-based MedTech start-up, EYE-GO, has the solution that can improve the lives of millions of people globally suffering from severe eye conditions. Leading ophthalmologists and frontrunning international players in the industry have already named it “a true game-changer in eye treatment”. The Danish state participated in the latest investment round.

      EYE-GO has developed a truly revolutionary medical device for ophthalmic drug administration. This system is the first to consistently secure the right dose and the right delivery into the cornea of the eye so that people with severe and chronic eye conditions can benefit from the full effect of the ocular medication for improved eye health.

      Henrik Nagel, CEO of EYE-GO elaborates: “One of the disruptive features of our technology is a high precision micro pump that releases a gentle mist of only 6µl (microliters), which matches the optimal absorption capacity of the cornea. In comparison, a dense drop from an eye drop bottle is between 30-60µl (microliters), which is a significant waste of resources as it cannot be absorbed in the cornea, and also risks irritating the skin around the eyes.”

      The effectiveness of EYE-GO’s advanced technology makes it cost-competitive globally to the conventional eye drop bottle. It further allows the global ophthalmic industry to optimize the level of active ingredients and introduce innovative ocular medication for entirely new treatment possibilities. That is good news for patients, and for business.

      Another revolutionary aspect of EYE-GO’s ocular drug delivery system is its ease of use.

      Henrik explains: “We wanted to create an exceptional user experience, at the same time as delivering the best therapeutic treatment effect for the eye. The result is a system that is extremely easy and comfortable to use – whether you are young or senior, and whether you are at home or on the go. People with eye disease are simply much more inclined to complete their treatment when it can be done in a convenient, comfortable, and hassle-free way. And that translates directly into a reduced risk of blindness, improved eye health, and quality of life.”

      Chairman of the board, Christian Stig Møller concludes: “We are very excited about the future. From the beginning, there has been an overwhelming interest in EYE-GO, and we are far in the dialogue with several interested pharma partners. We are also in the very fortunate position that all funding is in place to finalize the fully functional prototype that is reproducible in large numbers. That will take us from proof of technology to proof of concept.” Today, the circle of owners of EYE-GO includes business angles, Maj Invest, and as of this fall also financial support from Vækstfonden and Innovationsfonden, both owned by the Danish state. 

      December 2020

      New funding secured 

      EYE-GO is excited to announce that we have raised more than USD 1 million in a new investment round. The investment has been secured with the participation of all current shareholders that comprise business angles and Maj Invest, but also from Vækstfonden and Innovationsfonden – both owned by the Danish state.

       

      This capital injection enables us to produce our first fully functional prototype that is reproduceable in large numbers, thus moving us from proof of technology to proof of concept.
