PolyPhotonix secures six-figure funding deal to boost work on sight-saving sleep mask

North East medical innovator PolyPhotonix has secured a six-figure investment to ramp up work on its sleep mask, which could help to save the eyesight of diabetes patients.

Diabetic retinopathy – caused by high blood sugar levels which damage the retina – can cause blindness if left untreated, and it is one of the leading causes of sight loss in the UK. PolyPhotonix’s Noctura 400 Mask, however, delivers a dose of light therapy through closed eyelids while the wearer is asleep, a treatment which can reduce and even reverse the effects of diabetic retinopathy.
