The Optomed fundus camera has proven to be the correct choice
Designing a robust and effective Diabetic Retinopathy screening programme for a developing nation such as Eswatini hung upon 3 demands: 1. Untrained operators 2: Robust mobile fundus camera. 3: Low cost and sustainability.
The Optomed fundus camera has proven to be the correct choice: With little training, our screeners have mastered the art of retinal imaging on this platform. The camera’s ability and versatility have been proven in demanding African conditions. The low acquisition cost is attractive for funders and for expansion. These successes have allowed the successful grading of images in the field by the options of either instant AI or technician grading. Our Service demands have been well met in the Optomed retinal camera, and now with confidence from 2 years of operation, we are now set to expand the service, and Optomed equipment will be at home in busy diabetic clinics, dusty communities, and eye services alike!Back to references
