About us

The story

EarlySight is a Swiss startup company based in Geneva that aims at revolutionizing care of diseases affecting the eye. The company was founded in 2019 as a spin-off of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). The co-founders are two engineers: Timothé Laforest, PhD and Mathieu Kunzi, and two professors: Francine Behar-Cohen, MD, PhD and Christophe Moser, PhD. They have developed an imaging tool able to see the eye fundus at microscopic level and measure its biological structure. Coupled to an AI software, the tool has the potential to precisely detect and monitor disease biomarkers.


CEO & Co-founder

“EarlySight was born with a vision – to radically improve patient care by giving doctors the tool for earlier detection and better monitoring of retinal diseases.
With the unique ability to observe the retina down to the cellular level, EarlySight technology is at the forefront of imaging devices. The development of its AI-driven digital biomarker software will enable the company to offer a complete solution for eye doctors. It is the right time to answer the need for precision medicine.
I am proud to lead the EarlySight journey with the commitment of our collaborators, support from our investors, and the trust of our partners.”
