ENABLING OPTOMETRISTS TO BETTER DIAGNOSE DIABETIC RETINOPATHY
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. Given the widespread epidemic of diabetes, optometrists who work with 20/20NOW’s Ocular Telehealth System are now able to utilize this cutting-edge technology to identify diabetic retinopathy and refer patients for treatment, which ultimately can prevent blindness and other health complications.
