Pixieray, a Finland-based startup company, has raised $4.4 million in seed funding for a product it calls adaptive eyeglasses.

The company stated in a press release:

Pixieray introduces a pioneering optical solution to eyeglasses, giving perfect vision to the wearer in all use contexts. A traditional eyeglass lens is a mechanical and optical compromise, with fixed focal points. Pixieray’s adaptive solution delivers unmatched optical performance by constantly adjusting the focal point and applying the ideal correction. This reduces eye strain and substantially increases user comfort.

The company’s first product will enable people with a farsighted eyeglass prescription to read and work with optimal vision, removing cumbersome multifocals and the need to switch eyeglasses. Optical strength can be adjusted by the wearer over time to match changes in their vision. Pixieray technology also significantly increases the clear field of view compared to multifocal lenses.

For now, the company is keeping any further product and company details confidential but is hiring across various positions in engineering and operations.

Pixieray’s funding comes from venture capital firms and angel investors, including lead investors Maki.vc and First Fellow, Amazon Alexa Fund, firstminute capital, David Helgason, Ilkka Paananen, John Lindfors and Bragiel Brothers.
