With a mobile app and lens adapter we provide an easy to use, affordable and portable system for testing eyes, whether in a clinic or in the comfort of a patient’s home.
80% of blindness is avoidable. Existing eye care tools are expensive, difficult to use and access. People don’t get treated quickly enough, or at all.
Peek turns a smartphone into a comprehensive eye exam tool. Tested in the remotest places it gives high resolution images of the eye at a fraction of the cost.
As a social enterprise we are empowering all health workers by providing portable tools to help detect avoidable blindness.
Coming soon to Android, iOS and other platforms
It’s easier to use than traditional ophthalmoscopes which need specialists to operate them. This makes it suitable for a much wider group of health care workers including:
Regional and remote healthcare workers, accident and emergency staff, medical students, general practitioners (GPs), family doctors, nurses, consultants, optometrists, orthoptists, ophthalmologists and even vets.
It will be available to all European Union countries and those that follow the same EU and UK guidelines once certified. Approval is being sought with the FDA for use within the USA.
It works well in low income regions where traditional methods are often unsuitable or out of reach. We are working with partners to help distribute Peek at low cost in places like Kenya, Botswana, Tanzania and Mali.
Peek has patents pending. We are in the process of being certified for use within the European Union (CE Class 1) and all countries that follow guidelines of the UK Government’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Work toward the USA’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval and certification is in progress.
