optoVision offers opticians and ophthalmologists special eye-screening tests that can immediately detect retinal diseases. To this end, SPRYLAB developed the Retina-Care platform, a service which optoVision customers can use to receive an analysis of retina images for further treatment within a very short space of time.
For better vision
optoVision sees itself as a key service provider to opticians in Germany. It was therefore a logical step for the company to utilise its expertise in optometry and ophthalmic optics to offer an additional important service: a piece of software for analysing retina screening tests.
Retina screening tests can detect pathological changes to the eye at an early stage, making a significant contribution to the successful treatment of patients. The task was now to offer this software and the associated service to all providers on a user-friendly platform. Developed together with SPRYLAB, the concept and design for the website retina-care.de went live in 2019.
Everything at a glance
The Retina-Care platform offers high-precision eye screening which uses AI-based software. Developed by optoVision, this automated software solution analyses images of the retina with the aid of vector-based algorithms in less than a minute. This allows retinal anomalies and eye diseases such as glaucoma to be detected at an early stage so that the optician can start treatment.
With Retina-Care, SPRYLAB has developed a complex, user-friendly platform which allows opticians and ophthalmologists to access retina analyses. Retina-care.de contains a password-protected customer area with a screening portal for opticians and ophthalmologists, including a connection to the image service, which analyses retina images in less than a minute. What’s more, the platform architecture provides fast, easy access to the optoVision service.
An API is used to import Retina-Care images from the customer’s camera. The backend allows optoVision to perform a provider analysis and manage its users, as well as look after key administration for the communication with the analysis backend.
How it works:
- Eye screening: Optician or ophthalmologist photographs the retinas of both eyes.
- The images are uploaded automatically by the optician or ophthalmologist to the password-protected customer area of retina-care.de.
- Analysis is requested, with payment function using coin credit which can be purchased on the Retina-Care platform.
- The software analyses the retina images in less than a minute, allowing eye diseases to be detected at an early stage.
- The optician or ophthalmologist receives the results in a matter of minutes
Everything on one platform – everything at a glance. For optoVision, ‘Retina-Care and its services seek to reduce sight loss, which is often preventable, through fast and simple early detection. It is a practical addition to any eye specialist’s equipment and has short waiting times.’
