Padova, Italy and Pasadena, Calif. – 2016 –D-EYE Srl, a pioneering developer of smartphone-based retinal screening, announced the introduction of its version 2.0 App for iPhones. The updated App, available as a free download from the Apple Store, enhances functionality, allowing healthcare practitioners to more easily screen for eye health issues.
New features include auto focus calibration for myopic, hyperopic, and emmetropic eyes, saving time when conducting each 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 “Touch ID” feature.
“Customer satisfaction and continual enhancement are top priorities for D-EYE, especially considering how quickly the technological landscape advances. Our project development team has listened to our customers and quickly responded,” said D-EYE CEO Richard Sill. “Ease of use and image capturing and editing capabilities were top concerns amongst healthcare practitioners using our product and I know they will be pleased with this latest update,” he added.
The patent pending D-EYE lens is the invention of Italian Ophthalmologist Andrea Russo, who saw the opportunity to use the light source and camera of smartphones to perform direct ophthalmoscopy when examining patients. D-EYE is currently under evaluation/being used by Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, Neurologists, Pediatricians, Endocrinologists, Hospitalists, Primary Care and Emergency Medical Physicians.
D-EYE and the D-EYE App can be used with the iPhone 5, 5S, SE, 6, 6S, 6+, and 6S+.
