True breakthroughs are rare, but one has been achieved with Hubble’s retinal EyeQ™ Wellness Exam. The first of its kind, the EyeQ exam provides a new way of checking for, and diagnosing, systemic diseases.
An easy, non-invasive procedure captures an image of the retina and checks for ocular disorders such as glaucoma, retinopathy and macular degeneration. What makes the EyeQ Wellness Exam truly revolutionary is what happens next: the non-dilating exam also checks for a number of other health issues, including:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Risk of stroke
- Immune disorders
- Central nervous system disorders
- Certain forms of Cancer
- High blood pressure
The interconnectivity of the body’s various systems allows for a wealth of previously untapped information to be analyzed from the eyes. The cutting edge EyeQ system provides test results in a format that’s easy for both physicians and patients to understand: A single printout provides complete analysis in a streamlined format.
By analyzing the retina, EyeQ can identify diseases and issues in their earliest stages. This can make all the difference when it comes to medical intervention and prevention. All of this is accomplished with a non-invasive, non-dilating procedure that takes less than three minutes to perform.
The revolutionary EyeQ Wellness Exam is performed in four simple steps:
- Image Acquisition: A state-of-the-art camera takes a non-dilating image of the retina.
- Upload: The image is uploaded to Hubble’s telehealth network, TRIAD.
- QA/QC Check: The image is automatically checked for quality.
- Report Generation: A clear, easy-to-read report is generated, providing a detailed readout of diagnostic information.
The EyeQ non-dilating retina exam uses Hubble’s award-winning TRIAD telehealth network, which allows for remote analysis of retinal screenings. This adds versatility to the exam, allowing Hubble’s expert ophthalmologists to screen for eye disorders and systemic diseases whenever and wherever is convenient for the patient and healthcare professional.
