Simple and affordable retinal diagnostics at home for a better and personalized AMD treatment.
AMD is the leading cause of blindness
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading causes of blindness in developed countries. For several years, the wet form of AMD is effectively treated by injecting VEGF inhibitors into the eye. This treatment needs to be repeated regularly. However, the time when a treatment is necessary is unclear.
How are we improving AMD treatment?
We develop a solution, which allows automated inspection of the retina with a compact, affordable and simple to use device. This allows the patient to regularly check whether disease activity is present. If necessary, the patient is sent to the ophthalmologist for treatment. This prevents undertreatment and the consequent loss of vision.
Our home-care OCT technology
Our device for inspecting the retina uses a proprietary OCT technology which is based on a full field approach. This technology allows us to build affordable, small, handheld devices which can be used at home to check the retina.
