Early diagnosis and monitoring of AMD
The rapid diagnosis of retinal detachment is essential to preserve the sight of a patient with trauma or even with a high degree of myopia.
Retinoblastoma is the most frequent type of tumor that affects the eyes in childhood, which may manifest at birth or until the age of five. For the early detection of this type of cancer, Eyer can be used to capture panoramic retinal examinations.
Retinopathy of prematurity
One of the main ways of preventing retinopathy of prematurity is the ophthalmologic screening of all premature infants, which includes the fundus examination in the 4th week of life. The portability of Eyer allows this examination to be done on children and newborns.
I have met and worked with several projects of portable digital retinal cameras. The various ideas were always blocked in the lighting system, which always generated reflections and restricted the field of observation. For this reason mydriasis helps a lot for image quality, and Phelcom’s great idea lies precisely in the lighting system, which even in smaller pupils maintains the good image. After solving the technological challenge, the company took innovation seriously, which is putting the product in the market. Your business plan is feasible and relevant. As this plan materializes, we will have taken several steps towards the democratization of the ophthalmological examinations, increasing the correct referrals and reducing waiting times.
