January 14 2018, Orsay, France and Seoul, South Korea. Imagine Eyes® announces a new business partnership with Aracare™. Both companies signed an agreement that appoints Aracare as the exclusive distributor of Imagine Eyes’ rtx1-e Adaptive Optics Retinal Camera in South Korea.
“At Aracare, we have been receiving demands from multiple Korean doctors for Imagine Eyes’ cellular-resolution retinal imaging technology. Today I am thrilled to team with Imagine Eyes in order to meet these needs.” said Aracare’s President & CEO Mr. Dug Young Suh. “In addition to their high expertise in ophthalmology, Aracare supports clinical research and cultivates strong connections with major opinion leaders in ophthalmology.” said Imagine Eyes’ CEO Mr. Nicolas Chateau. “After establishing distributorship in Japan, this new partnership in Korea is a superb opportunity to further deploy our products in Asia.”
A few weeks ago, Aracare and Imagine Eyes exhibited the rtx1-e for the first time in Korea at the Asia-Pacific Vitreo-Retina Society congress in Seoul. After receiving enthusiastic feedback from Korean retinal specialists, the new partners initiated the product’s certification process in Korea.
Imagine Eyes is a recognized pioneer in cellular-resolution retinal imaging. Its breakthrough products enable doctors to examine the back of the eye with unprecedented detail, in order to detect early signs of diseases and better adapt treatments to patients. Such unique performance is provided by adaptive optics, a technology that Imagine Eyes’ engineers derived from astrophysics.
