AEYE Health’s Simple Eye Scan to Diagnose, Prevent Avoidable Blindness
Featuring FIBA company AEYE Health.
There will be a day in the near future, Dr. Zack Dvey-Aharon believes, that people will pop by their local pharmacy for a quick eye scan that within 120 seconds will detect a variety of medical conditions, prevent avoidable blindness, and even save lives. It’s a system that Dvey-Aharon, CEO AEYE Health, is developing with the digital health company he helms.
The eye may be a window to the soul, but the retina is the window to our health and wellness. A retinal test can help diagnose various diseases including high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and various illnesses that lead to vision loss.
Yet, even though the medical field knows the importance of a retinal screening test, there are few specialists who can do it and too few in the population are aware of its importance.
AEYE Health, with offices in New York and Tel Aviv, is on a mission to create a new, more accessible and improved standard for retinal screening process.
“Our company has algorithms for a wide range of conditions,” says Dvey-Aharon. “Our goal is to enable this test to take place everywhere — pharmacies, primary care settings, hospitals. This requires not only
accurate algorithms but to make them work in real conditions.”
