About Us

Started back in 2014, Shugarman Surgical Innovations had an idea to change the world one eye procedure at a time. With an idea built on the foundations of helping ophthalmologists do their jobs safer and more cost-effective, SpecLite was formed and has gone through hundreds of iterations to get to where it is today. The two cofounders, Braden Shugarman and Dr. Richard Shugarman, are working hard to put SpecLite in the hands of every ophthalmologists in the US and later the rest of the world. 

Brief History


Received a patent on SpecLite as well as FDA 501k approval. We are a Class I medical device and exempt form premarket approval.


Created a beta product to be presented to ophthalmologist. Then, used their opinions to change the design to match the market demand.


Manufactured a prototype that was engineered for doctor use in trials. Also, optimized the cost-effectiveness of the design and material selection. 


We plan to start production and sales to ophthalmologists interestedin using our products in their procedures during this year and expanding throughout the U.S. market.
