Announcing the Retinal™GeniX Imaging System

The Retinal™GeniX Imaging System (RIS) is intended to provide the next generation of cost-effective, ultra-wide imaging technologies to examine the periphery of the Retina, at up to a 200° field of view, to detect early signs of diabetic retinopathy without having to dilate the patient's pupil.

Understanding the early signs of diabetic retinopathy:

The central area of this photo shows white light from the camera reflection. There are tiny, light blots or spots farther out from the fovea/macula or center and indicate early signs of diabetic retinopathy. Those spots are small hemorrhages.

At this stage, often diabetes is diagnosed and treatment for both the body and the eye can be prescribed to preserve sight.

A closer look...

The optic nerve sheath is visible on both photographs and is the white object that begins from the center and appears in an upward right direction.
