Client Details

When a five-year-old boy was blinded after a regular eye exam failed to spot a retinal detachment, his father made it his life's work to help eye care professionals by revolutionising retinal imaging. Optos was founded by Douglas Anderson with the goal to make a patient-friendly device to capture a digital ultra-widefield image of the retina. Today, millions of patients around the world have benefited from optomap® retinal imaging. Since then, Optos has grown to a global organisation with manufacturing plants in the UK and USA. As a division of Nikon Co. Ltd, Japan since 2015, Optos is approaching its 30th anniversary and proud to be recognised as a leading provider of devices to eye care professionals to provide a more complete approach to patient care.
