Laguna Hills, CA —September 20, 2021 — Eyedaptic, Inc., a natural vision software company, announced today a new and improved version of its eyewear solution, the EYE4 with new EyeSwitch TM technology, is now available to aid those with retina-related vision challenges, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
