Imagine Eyes’ rtx1™ Adaptive Optics Retinal Camera receives the CE mark


Orsay France and Milan Italy, September 7, 2012 – Imagine Eyes, the pioneer in cellular-level retinal imaging, is proud to announce that it has received regulatory approval to market its rtx1™ Adaptive Optics Retinal Camera* with the CE mark in the European Union.
“This is an important event as it marks the first time that an instrument specifically designed to image the retina at the cellular scale has received the CE mark for use by clinical ophthalmologists” explains Imagine Eyes CEO Nicolas Chateau. “The rtx1 can allow doctors in the EU to visualize their patients’ retinas with a level of detail heretofore unachievable in the clinic. They may be able to observe many of the cellular and microvascular structures that can be affected by the diseases that threaten the vision of millions of people every year.”
Imagine Eyes will be presenting the rtx1 on stand P333 during the ESCRS/Euretina joint meeting exhibition in Milan from September 7 through 11, 2012. For more information, please visit or contact Mark Zacharria on +33 (0)1 64 86 15 66.
