Medical Technologies & Innovations (MTI) and Polaroid OEM Group will distribute jointly the MTI PhotoScreener in the US. The PhotoScreener is a computer-controlled hand-held camera which screens for vision disorders and has been cleared by the US FDA. Developed by MTI, the camera uses Polaroid Type 337 film to provide instant vision screening. Potential disorders such as strabismus, astigmatism and conditions that lead to amblyopia show up on the photographs of the retina as crescents in the individual's pupils. The size of the crescent is related to the amount of refractive error. A measuring tool supplied with the PhotoScreener helps operators evaluate the results.
