This article was originally published in Clinica
Optos, a Scottish ophthalmic products manufacturer, has been given US clearance to sell a device that can digitally screen the retina in less than a second. The Panoramic 200 device is used without dilating eye drops and does not come into contact with the eye, making it more acceptable to the patient, said the Dunfermline-based company. US sales, due to begin in the middle of the year, will be through the company's operations in Westborough, Massachusetts. European sales will start soon after.
