2. Eye-PAC

  • Computing technology for extracting information from eye images
  • Can help address the problem of wider accessibility to eye care
  • Can be deployed to create screening and diagnostic solutions for a range of vision-threatening diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration
  • HTIC collaborated with Forus Health to develop a custom image computing solution for 3nethra based on HTIC’s Eye-PAC™ technology (eye image processing, analytics and computing platform).
  • Powered by HTIC’s Eye-PAC™ technology, 3nethra has now reached over 140 installations across 10 countries– India, China, France, Thailand, Guatemala, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Oman, Mauritius, and Somalia
  • Eye-PAC™ technology’s intelligence in extracting clinically important information enables screening for eye diseases even when an expert is not available
  • Those who are tested positive during screening can later be sent to an expert for referral and diagnosis.
