EyeGlob.net In a Nutshell
EyeGlob is a project that is dedicated to creating a network dedicated to connecting all participants in the eye health industry.
EyeGlob will offer trusted services for users who suffer from an eye condition, a value exchange, a place to find trusted partners for Research and Development projects, clinical trials and verified qualified practitioners as well as a lot more.
The General Eye Health is Dramatically Falling
You might find this project strange at first, as out of all medical and research industries, eye health doesn’t seem like the niche with the most significant need for their own dedicated platform.
Well, the fact of the matter is that, most likely, you are uninformed, just like I was. Research shows that the general eye health is decreasing every year in a rapid phase, all over the world. Additionally, at this time approximately 28% of all people in the world are living with an eye disease.
In 2010 there were 1.9 billion people that had some kind of eye disease. It is estimated that the number will increase to 3 billion by 2030. While the diseases are going up, the number of eye health practitioners are declining with 1.7% per year. It is evident that this is not sustainable.
The official whitepaper of the projects states three main reasons for this:
Problem 1 – Closed communities for professionals
Problem 2 – Public awareness
Problem 3 – Large workload for professionals
Potential solution: The EyeGlob.net platform
We have now gone into the basics of the current eye health situation, but what where does the blockchain fit into the picture?
The blockchain is known to be the safest place to store and maintain data, as all information stored on the blockchain is permanent and virtually unhackable. Users on the platform can store data about their eye health and care records. This approach makes it easier for practitioners to access all relevant data they need to give the best treatment.
The blockchain will also help to maintain trust with the practitioners on the platform. The blockchain offers valid licenses to practitioners, a qualification system and trusted reviews.
Why is the platform needed?
We can find one great example on the projects Medium blog. Co-founder Algirdas Zukauskas received a touching story from a 32-year-old male who had been struggling with the current system.
The individual suffered from a severe case of dry eyes disease, a condition where the eyes don’t produce enough tears. This had impacted his life quality a great deal for five years. He noticed that the local practitioners in his country had little interest in his disease, and he had to travel far to get his treatment.
He continues by mentioning that he finds it annoying that he had to travel far and wait for several hours just to see a specialist for 10 minutes, and had no option of contacting the practitioner online. When met with a new specialist, he had to go through an extensive process of bureaucratic procedures to transfer the patient records to the new eye specialist. Whats even more surprising was that he had to transfer everything through fax, as the patient systems dimmed sending sensitive patient information online as insecure.
I won’t go through the whole message, but I highly recommend everyone to read it. Click here to read the full message.
He continues by going through why a platform like EyeGlobal.net would be a breakthrough for this industry
- Health care is in a severe need to modernize. The current system is inefficient and because of fear of hacking online many companies are reluctant to use an internet based internet system for sensitive data because of the risk of hacking.
- By applying modern technology, all participants in the industry could connect. By forming a global community, both patients, specialists, and researchers would have a place to interact.
- In many cases today, more time is being used on bureaucratic tasks than on the patients. An example of this is when a patient books a one-hour consultation when all he needs is a 5-minute dialogue. If this were done online on an efficient platform, the doctor would be able to serve more clients in a shorter time.
- EyeGlobal.net would give power back to the patient. Through the review based system practitioners are incentivized to provide a better service to their clients.
- The blockchain protects all sensitive data, and no unwanted actors get access to the data.
The fact of the matter is that the mentioned individual is not alone, and the industry needs change.
EyeGlob Token – EYE
The Eyeglob.net platform is going to be created as a tokenized ecosystem.
The EYE token is going to be issued as an Ethereum ERC-20 token. The token is designed to be the hearth of the ecosystem. All transactions on the platform will be done with the native token.
The total tokeln supply is 10 billion EYE, and 46% of th total token supply (4.6 billion) is allocated for investors in the ICO.
The EYE tokens can be exchanged on the platform for a number of products and services.
- Products like eye-related products, medications and books.
- Payment for treatment by partnered eye clinics, services like insurance.
- Payment for studies and qualification events as well as to access Premium services on the platform.
- Payment for ads. Advertisers are expected to become the main revenue source on the platform, and the only accepted payment is the EYE token.
Regular users on the platform will have the ability to earn tokens by creating and sharing content, as well as for sharing data. Examples of this can be writing articles or reviews and filing patient data for researchers. This is also known as Data mining, the more useful content and data you share, the more tokens gets allocated to you through the “mining.”
Users can do eye health tests through their phone on the platform and receive data about the result and receive a standardized report summarizing the received data.
If a user needs to consult an eye specialist, they can easily find the most suitable doctor through a number of requirements such as specialization, practice, and feedback from other users.
For advertising on the platform, advertisers have to pay all expenses in EYE tokens.
Research and development teams will be rewarded with EYE tokens for being active on the platform.
The team has already been working together on various projects for twenty years, an example of this is ORIGMED a, Lithuanian based company focusing on the development and production of new ophthalmic aids.

The pre-ICO started July 31 with a 50% bonus. 4 million USD has been allocated to the presale. At this time (7 days after presale launch) tokens for approximately 1.2 million USD has been sold.
The main sale is set to start mid-September, and the bonus structure here will be as follows; 40% bonus the first week, and then gradually decreasing 10% each week for the duration of five weeks.
The soft cap has been set to 2 million USD. A common occurence during the current bear market is that people avoid investing in ICO’s because a limited number ever reaches soft cap. Although this is a possibility with Eyeglobal, the company seems confident that they will achieve their goal soft cap, stating that they have enough friends to make it happen (source).

Company: EYE HEALTH FOUNDATION, OU
The rapid growth of demand for eye health services and a limited number of professionals globally is a big problem. Most spread diseases today are controllable, but not curable.
At first, the project seemed overly ambitious, but the deeper I went into the project, the more convinced I became.
The fact of the matter is that statistics prove that there is a rapid growth of demand in eye health services, yet the number of practicing eye doctors is decreasing.
By creating an efficient ecosystem for connecting the different actors in the industry, sharing of data and research, Eyeglob.Net has the potential to save billions.
It should be noted that this project is extensive, and contains a number of features that are unmentioned in this article.
The project is highly ambitious, and it is going to be challenging to convert a big enough userbase to the platform. The positive sides are that the project is supported by a well-qualified team, a highly unique product and a platform that is much needed in the industry (several experts in the industry have confirmed this).
