NEW YORK, N.Y. 20/20NOW, the pioneer and innovator of Ocular Telehealth, recently announced their use of Artificial Intelligence (“AI”) to allow for the early detection of retinal disease such as diabetic retinopathy.  Through the use of FDA approved equipment and software, retinal images are immediately enhanced using the AI program, allowing optometrists to diagnose with more confidence conditions that affect the retina. With traditional testing, some retinopathy may go undetected in its early stages.
