Usually, diabetic patients would need to go to anophthalmology clinic for examination and they would need to wait a few days to get the results. With the introduction of VeriSee DR in medical clinics and health examination centers with ophthalmoscopes allows initial screening to be conducted without an ophthalmologist, making the process a lot faster and simpler. The result on referral recommendations is provided in 3 seconds and its accuracy is up to 93%.
