RetinaSense manages, analyses and reports on retinal images. This was developed through an Innovate UK – Newton project with the University of Surrey, Queen’s University Belfast and an Indian business partner, Remidio.

These images are analysed using computer vision as well as human ophthalmologists to provide a quick and accurate diagnosis.
