Screening in Bolivia

Screening in Bolivia

Press release

Dr Mario Angi is a renown  ophthalmologist based in Padova and President of CBM Italia Onlus, a non-profit organization with headquarter in Germany.
During the last mission screening in Bolivia, Dr. Angi examined more than 200 kids using Kaleidos. Below is his comment on the use of Kaleidos in this mission trip:

“During the screening conducted in Bolivia from the 26th of April to the 2nd of May 2019, we examined more than 200 kids at first grade school, comparing the data and visual acuity performed by Kaleidos, with the ones performed by HandyRef Nidek’s autorefractor – without cycloplegic. At the end the results showed that astigmatism measurements almost match between the two devices: Kaleidos, for the spherical defect, doesn’t generate a false myopia – found in 20% of the exams made with the autorefractometer without cycloplegic. Combining Kaleidos – a binocular refractometer – with visual acuity measurement reduces the risks of false positive results due to non-collaborative pediatric patients and helps to identify the patients with strabismus >10 PD.”

OneSight & National Geographic event

OneSight & National Geographic event

Press release

On May 2nd, OneSight hosted an event with National Geographic at the National Geographic Society Headquarters, bringing together some of the brightest minds in vision care to discuss serving the neediest populations around the world. We were invited to take part to this event where the Pulitzer Prize photographer Stephanie Sinclair was the keynote speaker. Stephanie Sinclair is the same photographer who provided the photos that accompany the beautiful National Geographic’s article on the use of Kaleidos and VisionFit during the Onesight mission in the Amazon River.

The panel discussion brought to life the existing lack of access to eye care services that many individuals and entire countries like Rwanda, Brazil, China, and the US suffer. The right of a clear sight impact education outcomes, economic potential, and quality of life. We can solve this critical global vision care gap for good, together.

A”Future everyone can see”: this is our common goal now.

Our KOL, Dr. Robert Arnold is a paediatric ophthalmologist working in Alaska and committed to the Paediatric Eye Disease Investigation.
He brought paediatric and adult eye care to oppressed ethnic groups in Burma in collaboration with Burma Vision project. Kaleidos was used to screen people there and even in remote parts of the world the device works. Doctor Arnold made this video about his screening experience in Burma. 
This is a great and valuable witness about our Kaleidosutilization: “Children in America, children in Europe and children even in remote parts of the World can benefit from photo screening with the device like this”.

Proud to be part of a project like this!
