RetinaLyze prevents vision loss

RetinaLyze is an effective visual health service that works tirelessly to prevent the threatening blindness of people around the world.

It is a software, which, through a vectorial algorithm, detects, in premature stages, indications of small lesions, which could in future cause loss of vision, due to diabetic retinopathy or due to age-related macular degeneration, from a photograph of the eye fundus (made with a Retinograph).

History

Danish Multinational Novo Nordisk A / S, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of insulin, one day raised the challenge of investigating how to prevent the threatening blindness of people with diabetes. To do this, they began to develop software in which a vectorial algorithm, based on a photograph of the ocular fund, made with a Retinograph, detects, in premature stages, indications of small lesions, which could in the future cause the loss of view.

In 2008, the crisis forced to stop the research and implementation, until Jens Thygesen, one of the ophthalmologists who participated in the creation of the software bought it and began using it in his hospital in Copenhagen.

In 2014, the analytical method was exported to the cloud and made accessible trough internet. Since its appearance in the market, RetinaLyze has quadrupled its profit. With a global expansion, it operates in Europe, the United States, China, Japan, India, Australia, among others. In China there are already 7000 public hospitals that use this method.

From Bolivia the expansion to Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Uruguay and Peru begins, totalizing 7 countries for which we have the representation.

Fight against preventable blindness

In the world there are 50 million blind people and 250 million with very limited vision. These figures will double by 2020 unless we do something.

Meanwhile, diabetes is a disease that is progressing worldwide and it is estimated that by 2020 there will be more than 300 million registered diabetics (type 1 or 2). Besides, by that time it is estimated that the number of unregistered diabetics will exceed 250 million, being one of the most feared consequences of diabetes, diabetic retinal pathology, as it can lead to blindness.

It is estimated that 90% of blind people live in developing countries and that 90% of these cases are treatable and avoidable at very low cost using appropriate technology.

RetinaLyze is an important ally in the fight against blindness, since it allows an early diagnosis, using latest technology through an effective, fast and reliable method.
