Welcome to Remote Optical!

We are a Montréal-based Medtech start-up aiming to revolutionize ophthalmological care by developing systems for remote examination, diagnosis and patient monitoring.

Problem:

There is a lack of access to ophthalmologists. Remote eye examinations would help alleviate this burden, however, no high-quality method for remotely examining the front of the eye exists.

In Canada, 29% of census areas lack an opthalmologist. In the United States, 97.4% of rural counties lack an opthalmologist

Our solution:

Our solution offers remote and asynchronous eye exams that leverage the power of AI to assist ophthalmologists. This improves access to eye care for people in rural communities, senior homes, ICUs, ERs, and beyond. Additionally, our innovation improves eye disease monitoring, while saving patients and doctors time and money.
