EYOTO™ exists to innovate - creating new technology solutions for the worldwide Optical Industry.


EYOTO™ originated as a spinout from Aston University’s School of Optometry - one of the leading and best-known Optometry programs in the world. The company seeks to tackle problems facing the optical industry through advanced technology, with a specialty in image processing, computer vision, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and ophthalmic user interface design.

Driven by market needs, EYOTO™ are now developing a range of hardware and software products that specifically incorporate recent advances in Artificial Intelligence, low cost/high-performance optics, and mobile processing power. Since our launch in 2013, we have grown dramatically from developer to equipment manufacturer to full technology solutions provider.

"All aspects of the optical market - design, retail, manufacturing, and logistics - are undergoing massive change, and there is a strong and growing demand for tools to support and capitalize on that change. Our products take a unique and fresh approach to the field of optometric instrumentation, and the EYOTO™ brand is underpinned by that freshness."
