As with other healthcare areas, the pandemic is having a great impact on eye care. Due to the close proximity between patients, customers, clinicians and staff when performing their everyday duties and examinations, the recommended social distancing to prevent transmission of Covid-19 has proven to be difficult to implement. With its Topcon versus Covid-19 campaign, the company offers free access to its telemedicine solution, Topcon Harmony. By signing up for a free trial of Harmony, eye care professionals can upload images and scans and send referrals and consultation requests to healthcare collaborators. European users will also be given access to Thirona’s Artificial Intelligence tool, RetCAD, which enables automatic image analysis of coloured fundus images for potential detection of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Diabetic Retinopathy (DR). To get access to Harmony, eye care professionals should visit: https://topconhealth.eu/Topcon-vs-covid-19
In addition to free access to the telemedicine platform, Topcon Healthcare has also previously announced that a free slit lamp breath shield to combat the transmission of respiratory illnesses is available for customers.
