D-EYE Showcases Innovations in Retinal Imaging

Introduces D-EYE 2.0 and new Improved “Quick Release” Bumper Attachment
 
COPENHAGEN, Denmark — September 6, 2016— D-EYE, a pioneering developer of smartphone-based retinal imaging, is pleased to announce its showcase at the combined September 9-13 ESCRS & EURETINA 2016 Congress in Copenhagen, Denmark.
 
Located in Hall H – Booth 136, the company will present its new second generation iPhone App (Version 2.0) along with the introduction of a new bumper latch design that will accommodate the current iPhone models SE, 5, 6 and 6+ series.
 
The D-EYE Retinal Imaging System is quickly becoming the modern digital ophthalmoscope. The break through smartphone/lens combination allows for an easy examination process without the uncomfortable close proximity of patients and physicians when using a traditional ophthalmoscope.
 
The award-winning, patent pending lens design eliminates common corneal glare found when using a traditional ophthalmoscope or other direct lens systems. The D-EYE application allows for capturing both images and or videos of the posterior that can be saved to a detailed patient file, shared for further assessment, and stored for future health comparisons. The new D-EYE 2.0 application is encrypted to meet global patient privacy guidelines.
 
The D-EYE system is ideal for the screening of a variety of pathologies including Glaucoma, later stage Diabetic Retinopathy (DR), Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Papilledema, Hypertensive Retinopathy and various other eye disorders. Viewed by users as a digital window to the body, D-EYE is also used by Neuro Ophthalmologists, Neurologists, Pediatric Ophthalmologists, Pediatricians, Emergency Phycians and many other specialists who perform an Ophthalmoscopy as a routine patient examination practice.
 
At the Congress, executives from the company will be on hand so attendees can perform an examination and see for themselves the unique capabilities of the D-EYE system.
 
The company will also demonstrate the unique features of the new App version 2.0. The new application enhances functionality to include auto focus calibration for myopic, hyperopic, emmetropic eyes, saving time when performing a retinal exam. An Image Mask feature is also part of the new App, allowing users to highlight the posterior pole in real time.  Image editing features have also been expanded to include contrast, brightness, RGB, Gamma, and saturation.  And, for the iPhone 6, 6S, 6+, 6S+, users can now easily log on to the D-EYE app via the new Apple “Touch ID” feature.

CE Class I Registered Device 2014
FDA Class II 510k exempt 2014 – audited February 2016
