Introducing: Optomed & ViP - Health centers now have access to high-quality handheld fundus cameras and screening software at lower rates.
Since 2000, Community Health Ventures (CHV) has worked to connect health centers with best-in-class vendors. We are excited to announce our partnership with Optomed. Optomed's handheld fundus camera aims to transform the diagnostic process of blinding eye diseases such as rapidly increasing diabetic retinopathy. CHV’s position in the marketplace is unique and perfectly aligned to expand Optomed’s market presence and education in the growing health center movement.
There are four key components that define health centers & help them reach America's most underserved communities
The number of diabetics has been growing rapidly around the world and one third of them suffer from diabetic retinopathy, the most common cause of vision loss in working-age adults.
Diabetic retinopathy is treatable, if detected early. However, due to the limited number of ophthalmologists and eye screening services, majority of diabetics globally do not have access to regular screenings.
Our Solution to a Global Problem
Effective eye screening prevents diabetes-related blindness and reduces overall health care costs.
