A new tool for ophthalmologists and optometrists is now available online, making it easier to monitor changes in the eye. EyeIC has released a cloud-based application that allows to easily compare fundus photographs taken at different times of the same patient, or across patients.
The unique feature of this online app is the MatchedFlicker interface which uses automated alternation flickering (AAF) technology to compare the fundus images. It enables better and faster comparison by using alternating superimposed images instead of side-by-side ones. Changes in the fundus photograph should be spotted more easily and also a lot faster. Users have to subscribe to be able to use the online MatchedFlicker technology, which has already been cleared as an FDA 510(k) class II device in the U.S. as well as having received approval in Europe.
