Laser Retinal Imaging Scanner

Improving retinal imaging through automation

Collaborating with our friends at Sensing Machines, we helped Vasoptic Medical automate their retinal laser image acquisition process. Using their existing enclosure and optics, we developed an add-on enclosure to provide collinear laser and LED lighting that the operator could switch between at the touch of a button. This allowed the operator to align the system and actuate the automated image capture without having to move the device or think about timing. We performed the mechanical design of the new enclosure, electrical design of the custom PCB, collinear alignment of the laser, LED, and optical components, as well as the final prototype finishing for investor demos.

Vasoptic Medical has since developed a low-cost, handheld retinal imager for assessing blood-flow and vascular status for early diagnosis in primary care settings of a vision-threatening condition called diabetic retinopathy. The product has completed the FDA-regulatory process and is commercially available.
