What is the problem
80% of blindness is avoidable.
Population is getting older. Significant increase of retina diseases like AMD and Diabetic retinopathy and others.
Not enough retina specialist world wide. Too expensive to access to them.
Blindness is a personal tragedy and implies high treatment costs.
Current screening methods are expensive and limited to certain conditions.
Telemedicine systems are expensive and difficult to implement.
Regulatory compliance and data protection difficult the implementation.
What we do
We developed a web based platform and build a remote network of retina specialists which enables a very fast, reliable, cost efficient screening for retina evaluation.
GP’s, Opticians, insurance companies, Endocrinologists, general Ophthalmologists, pharma companies and other healthcare providers taking care of eye diseases and eye health can get the retina evaluations everywhere and at any time.
We Prevent blindness Together with all other players.
Using the state of the art machine learning algorithms available OPTretina Tech empowers the remote eye-doctors performance, reducing the costs and avoiding human errors. Any fundus camera is compatible and a network of retina specialists world wide can help to detect retina abnormalities, enabling a faster diagnosis and treatment of the retina diseases

Are there other similar solutions?
Not really. There are companies offering fundus cameras, companies offering readings with algorithms, reading centers, but nobody offers a holistic solution, where you can combine existing elements you already have.
Can we use existing algorithms?
Definitely. We can integrate any algorithm in the market. However, current algorithms are only evaluating a limited number of diseases mainly Diabetic Retinopathy or AMD.
Why is OPTretina solution so efficient?
Because OPTretina is a hybrid system. We can use algorithms to help the best retina experts to do their job VERY FAST. This way, a single doctor can review hundreds of patients a day.
What are we looking for
We want to expand the use of the platform together with companies or organizations that are active and have market strengths where we do not operate.
Any company active in the eye-care sector (optical, medtech, ophthalmology, insurance business or pharma) can take advantage of our technology to reduce costs, to enable new business models or new markets.
We seek companies or strategic partners that want to implement a ready to use, adaptable, solid and reliable solution, developed based on experience. We dramatically reduce development time, cost and risk.
