MegaVision Forms Diabetic Retinopathy Service Company
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., July 25 - MegaVision Inc. announced today the formation of Insight Diagnostics, Inc. a diagnostic services company that will offer health care providers convenient, customizable options for assessing and managing diabetic eye disease.
MegaVision's history in the field of opthalmic photography's work with the world's leaders in ophthalmic care led to the decision to create InSight Diagnostic. "We are excited to bring together industry experts to offer innovative and effective solutions for eliminating vision loss" says Ken Boydston, President of MegaVision. "Diabetes is a growing public health problem and as a result, so is diabetic retinopathy. We understand this problem and want to offer better ways to help manage a population of patients at risk."
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness and vision loss in adults, despite the availability of excellent treatment. Early detection of the disease is critical to preserving vision. While providers and systems have made a major push to improve retinopathy evaluation rates, it remains one of the most difficult scores to improve. This problem is compounding as the population with diabetes grows and ages. InSight Diagnostics works with health care providers identifying patients at risk before the disease progresses.
"Primary care based diabetic retinopathy evaluations are standard in large health systems in the United States and Europe." says Gene Hopper, President of InSight Diagnostics, Inc. "We are focused on making a standardized, evidence based service accessible in various care settings."
InSight Diagnostics provides flexible imaging, evaluation and location options to increased screening rates and improved quality of care. Santa Barbara based MegaVision introduced the first professional quality digital camera over 20 years ago and pioneered the dawn of the digital revolution in imaging. MegaVision continues its legacy of imaging excellence providing the highest quality camera systems for the professional, scientific, cultural and medical industry.
