What is CheckEye?

А cloud-based solution to detect diabetic retinopathy using photographic images of eye fundus through the ML\AI algorithm.

Problem

According to the International Diabetes Federation, over 537 million people are living with diabetes globally and this number is growing at an alarming rate. Most of these people will develop some form of retinopathy causing reduced vision or, in severe cases, blindness.

‘Everyone with diabetes is at risk of losing vision.’
– International Diabetes Federation

The World Health Organisation defines diabetic retinopathy as the leading cause of blindness in the working age population in most countries. However, early diagnosis and timely treatment of diabetic retinopathy can prevent sight impairment and blindness. Interventions that are both cost-saving and feasible include screening and treatment for retinopathy.

‘After 15 years of diabetes,
approximately 2% of people become blind,
and about 10% develop severe visual impairment.’
– World Health Organisation

Solution

CheckEye has developed a cloud-based solution to detect diabetic retinopathy using photographic images of eye fundus through the ML\AI algorithm. Photographs can be taken anywhere – from optic retailers to pharmacies – by non-medical staff to be further uploaded to the system for diagnosis. CheckEye will make early detection and prevention of diabetic retinopathy easily accessible for all.

Who benefits?

The public health and economic benefits of early detection and treatment of diabetic retinopathy are immense.

ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS

More accurate diagnosis through better quality of screening images achieved with AI-based technology

BETTER PERFORMANCE RESULTS

Higher rate of appointments for patients with screen-positive results who require treatment more urgently.

PUBLIC HEALTH SYSTEMS & INSURANCE COMPANIES

BETTER ACCESS TO SCREENING

Lowering the barriers for access and the cost of systematic eye screening for DR reduces disease burden on the public health and social care systems.

LESS FINANCIAL BURDEN

Early detection of DR brings down the cost of treatment timefold.

MORE ACCURATE SCREENING RESULTS

Automated image analysis systems provide a more accurate diagnosis compared to the manual grading, thus allowing to prioritise patients for treatment based on the severity of their condition.

LESS ADMIN WORK FOR MEDICAL PERSONNEL

Where there are staff shortages and/or limited access to treatments, the system prioritises patients automatically based on the severity of their condition.
