Optovue Announces Formation of the EYE-GIVE Foundation for World-Wide Eye Care Philanthropy Activity
Date:4/13/2010

US based manufacturer of first FDA cleared FD/SD-OCT to share its success through charity foundation.

Fremont, CA (PRWEB) April 13, 2010 -- Optovue, a pioneer in fourier/spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT), has founded “Eye-Give,” a non-profit foundation for the purposes of donating technology and funding to sight saving charities and organizations around the world.

"Optovue has enjoyed tremendous success since introducing the first FD/SD-OCT system in the US, and I have always had the dream of making OCT technology available to everyone in the world." stated Jay Wei, founder of Optovue. "With the international launch of iVue recently, that dream has moved forward another step in making this imaging technology available to more levels of eye healthcare where advanced systems are not economically feasible. We wish to extend that reach even further by providing this compact system to the organizations around the world dedicated to fighting eye disease in areas where access to newer technology is limited."

About RTVue and iVue
RTVue was the first FDA cleared fourier-domain (also known as spectral domain) OCT launched in the United States, and also the first OCT cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for both corneal and retinal imaging. The iVue is the compact fourier-domain version of the RTVue OCT, offering the same scanning speed and resolution as the larger system, producing extremely high definition images with more biological detail and functional advantages than the previous technology.
