The eye is one of your most important senses: 80% of what we perceive comes through a sense of sight. By protecting your eyes, you will reduce the odds of blindness and vision loss.

Infomine understands the importance of the sense of sight, so we work through our Patient Detection Specialist team, which spread all over Egypt, and in In cooperation with Novartis to implement projects related to ophthalmology to help people maintain their vision. One of these projects is retinal diseases clinic, as Infomine seeks, through this project, to help people maintain the quality of their eyesight, especially diabetics, because they are more vulnerable to exposure to eye damage, the specialist examines the patient’s retina and gives him the result to be shown to the specialist doctor.

This project faced many challenges, such as moving the device to a safe, secure and stable place so that the device would not be exposed to any shocks or damages and the need for the patient to understand the importance of the examination and continuous follow-up with the doctor to conduct the examination and know its results. However, the most important difficulty for the project was its continuation during the Covid-19 period as the specialists exposed their lives to infection with the Coronavirus even with taking preventive measures for their direct interaction with patients and their presence in places such as hospitals, in addition to working continuously to maintain the cleanliness of the device to not transmit any viruses to patients.

Despite all these challenges, Infomine has been able to succeed with this program and help patients with early diagnosis of any damage to their eyes to avoid vision loss.
