Who We Are

For over a decade, Retina Labs has been a leader in teleretinal screening for diabetic retinopathy and other ocular disorders.  Our cloud-based iVision teleophthalmology platform offers an integrated solution that combines advanced ocular imaging, clinical interpretation and reporting tools with electronic referrals. Our solutions allow healthcare providers to improve access to quality eye care while streamlining the processes related to the management of chronic eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and retinopathy of prematurity. iVision is the teleophthalmology platform of choice for health systems, primary care providers and health plans looking to close care gaps around diabetic eye disease, improve outcomes and reduce costs.

We believe that telemedicine can play a crucial role in improving access to eye care and in preventing unnecessary vision loss. This approach allows diabetic patients to get their annual retinal exam performed closer to home minimizing travel time—especially for remote communities, as well as improved convenience for those with mobility issues. Retina Labs teleretinal screening solutions and services have proven to generate significant measurable cost savings while improving patient experience and outcomes.

Our Story

In the beginning, we set out to fundamentally change the way in which retinal screenings were conducted through innovative telemedicine technology and clinical assessment tools. Retina Labs was one of the very first software companies to develop a completely web-based telemedicine platform specifically designed for diabetic retinopathy screening.

Diabetes is a growing global epidemic. Each year, millions of diabetics go blind or suffer from unnecessary vision loss as a result of diabetic retinopathy, a common complication of diabetes. While diabetic retinopathy has become the leading cause of blindness, 95% of cases are preventable and treatable if detected early enough through an annual retinal exam.

However, only half of patients with diabetes are being screened for diabetic retinopathy. For many, the disease goes undetected until it’s too late as patients are unaware they even have the condition. For payers and health systems, the cost of treating diabetic retinopathy is significantly higher than any investments in prevention and early detection of the disease. For patients, the impact of vision impairment represents fundamental diminution of the quality of life.
