Eye Care Everywhere
October is a unique month as we celebrate two important and worth to be shared causes: The Blindness Awareness Month and the World Sight Day.
According to the Foundation Fighting Blindness, there are 285 million people who suffer vision problems around the globe, of which, 39 million are completely blind.
Only in the United States, 90 percent of the 10 million individuals with retinal diseases, have not lost their vision entirely and can be treated in order to reduce the symptoms caused by these diseases.
In the same way, The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness assures that more than 75 percent of visual impairment is avoidable with on-time diagnosis and treatment.
The RETeval® device offers fast, painless and accurate testing for the retina, providing professionals with an innovative tool that gathers data necessary for on-time / early diagnosis diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and cataracts, which have been identified as the number one cause of sight loss today.
The following are some of the ways how the RETeval® device is helping define, preserve and monitor vision worldwide:
- Ensures patient comfort and reliability through the use of LKC’s sensor strips and advanced pupillography.
- Helps with monitoring disease progression and management for many ischemic diseases such as CRVO, Uveitis, and toxicities.
- Ease of use and intuitive interface allows the RETeval® to be easily and quickly integrated in any clinical environment.
Join us in celebrating these two remarkable causes and helping others define their vision.
