Annual cost of vision impairment
People have severe visual impairment
The rate of eye pathology is growing rapidly with an ageing population and a rise in chronic diseases such as diabetes.
However, access to specialist level eye health professionals is limited globally making it impossible to cope with the eyecare problem.
The existing patient journey for the majority of people is often inefficient.
As an example, eyecare clinics in the UK are struggling to keep up with the estimated 10 million outpatient appointments made for eyecare problems every year.
Patients often wait over 4 months for an appointment with an Ophthalmologist. During this time they often suffer severe visual sight loss.
Every unnecessary referral means patients must endure unnecessary travel, wait times and eye scan duplication.
Limited access to basic healthcare, let alone specialist eyecare, leaves vision problems undetected and results in severe sight problems for millions of people.
We have developed a modular patient centred end-to-end SaaS Tele-Eyecare solution. Having this solution gives patients rapid access to specialist level eyecare at a much lower cost regardless of their location.
Our solution can be used in primary healthcare settings (General Practitioners, Optometrists, Pharmacists), in Ophthalmology clinics and in hospitals. Being scalable, it can also be implemented as a nation-wide government-led screening service.
As a software company, our SaaS solutions are device agnostic. We ensure that we integrate with existing hardware, such as OCT’s, fundus cameras, visual field screeners and autorefractors, that is used by primary health care providers or specialists.See the solution
