Market Insights

Chronic diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration which highly affect the retina region can be prevented by early screening with retina scanners. The scanning is performed by casting a beam of low energy infrared light in the eye in order to trace the unique pattern of retinal blood vessels. The advantages associated with retinal scans are the low occurrence of false positives, highly reliable and performed within a short duration of time. The limitations associated with this technology are its accuracy gets hindered by eye diseases such as cataract and severe astigmatism, high equipment cost and is still in its nascent stage to being used on a large scale commercial use.
