Optos is pleased to announce that its founder, Douglas C. Anderson has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (UK). The national Academy brings together the most successful and talented engineers from across the engineering sectors for a shared purpose: to advance and promote excellence in engineering.
The national Academy has a global outlook and uses international partnerships to ensure that the UK works with international engineering networks, expertise and investment. They take a lead on engineering education and invest in the UK’s world class research base to underpin innovation.
CEO, Roy Davis commented, “We’re immensely pleased for Douglas at his election to this distinguished group of the UK’s most eminent engineers. His involvement with the development of ultra-widefield retinal imaging has enabled ophthalmic professionals around the world to see more, diagnose more and treat more diseases earlier thus saving sight and lives. It is the technology at the core of Optos’ vision to be recognised as The Retina Company and one that is unmatched in the industry”.
As a Fellow, Douglas will be working to support the Academy’s strategic objectives, each of which provides a key contribution to a strong and vibrant engineering sector and to the health and wealth of society.
Optos offers our very best wishes to Douglas and we’re proud to share this profound achievement with him.
