eSight Announces Clinical Research Partnership with Ocular Health Centre’s EyeStart Inc.

Collaboration with EyeStart to help develop the next generation of eSight devices

TORONTO – October 20, 2021 – Leading vision-enhancement platform, eSight, today announces a new
research and development partnership with the Ocular Health Centre, one of Ontario’s top multi-doctor
ophthalmology practices, and the cofounders of medical device incubator, EyeStart, Inc.

The partnership with Dr. Jaspreet Rayat, Dr. Richard Weinstein and Dr. Toby Chan in Kitchener-Waterloo
will focus on direct patient feedback in a study that will shape eSight’s future. eSight Chief Technology
Officer Charles Lim, Senior Product Manager Khurram Farooq and research scientist Dr. Elena Marenny
are leading the project, which will involve a stepwise research study during the developmental process.

“This collaboration with EyeStart Inc. allows eSight to address patients’ needs from day one, while
creating technology that is developed with physician and industry expert input,” said eSight Chief
Technology Officer Charles Lim. “eSight has always relied on patient feedback for product development,
but this allows us to zero in early on the features that will benefit patients most.”

eSight uses a proprietary combination of hardware and software to enhance vision in its clinically
validated head-mounted devices. EyeStart Inc. is in the process of screening patients who can benefit
from eSight’s technology, used to help thousands of people with low vision worldwide.

“One of our primary goals at EyeStart is to enhance the lives of our patients and the collaboration with
eSight fulfills that mission,” said Dr. Jaspreet Rayat. “Their product has increased the quality of life of
many around the world and so it was a natural fit for us to join forces to bring the best technology to
help our patients’ vision.”

“As an early investor in eSight, I closely watched this company grow over the years. There is even more
potential for this technology to make an impact for those living with vision loss,” explained Dr. Richard
Weinstein. “Through this, and other research, EyeStart is committed to advancing the Canadian
MedTech sector and beyond.”
