Celebrating 30 Years of Optos!

Posted on Sep 27, 2022 by

Over thirty years ago, a five-year-old boy lost his vision after a regular eye exam failed to spot a retinal detachment. 

His father, Douglas Anderson, made it his mission to revolutionize retinal imaging for eye care professionals. And in 1992 when Optos was founded, his goal was met with the availability of a patient-friendly device that can capture an ultra-widefield (UWF™) high-resolution retinal image. And today, these devices are still the only devices that, in a single-capture, image approximately 82% or 200 of the retina.
