Adam Wax

Lumedica was founded by an experienced team of engineers including Chief Scientist Dr. Adam Wax from the Pratt School of Engineering. Dr. Wax’s team has developed a new low-cost optical coherence tomography (OCT) scanner that could dramatically extend the impact of the imaging technology for eye health by making eye imaging more affordable, accessible and easier to use. Affordable access would enable more health care providers to conduct OCT imaging, giving patients greater, earlier access to the one test that can save their vision and improve their quality of life.


“I’ve worked with OTC on many technologies over the years. They’ve helped me develop the patent protection we needed to get our companies off the ground.” – Adam Wax, PhD, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Pratt School of Engineering
