Diabetes Monitoring & Screening

The eye is often described as a ‘window to the soul’, but it also provides a fascinating insight into the health of the body.

 

We're pioneering technological solutions to screen for, and monitor, some of humanity's greatest health challenges. Starting with diabetes.

4.7 million

people in UK suffer from diabetes

17 million

Have pre-diabetes and left unchecked will likely develop diabetes within 10 years

The Diabetes Problem

900,000

unaware they have the disease

1 in 10

people over 40 in the UK are now living with a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes

£14Bn

the annual cost to NHS to treat patients with diabetes & related complications.

£4.9Bn

could be saved by preventing just 10% of people with pre-diabetes developing the disease

 

“The signs of Type 2 diabetes are often not obvious, that’s why spotting them early can be life-changing. Early diagnosis means that fewer people will experience diabetes-related complications such as sight loss, amputation, kidney failure, stroke and heart disease because they could seek support to manage their condition effectively as soon as possible."

Chris Askew, Chief Executive of Diabetes UK

The Occuity Glucose Monitor

We're working on the research and development of a revolutionary new way of monitoring blood glucose levels. The Occuity Glucose Monitor will make it easier for people to check their glucose levels through a simple scan of the eye, removing the need for them to endure painful, complicated and invasive finger-prick blood tests. 


The handheld monitor will work by measuring subtle changes within the anterior chamber of the eye in just a few seconds before analysing the results instantly to determine blood glucose levels. 

As this technique will be non-invasive, simple to use and require no other disposable items, users will be able to perform tests as regularly as they need to, with no additional costs.

NB. The Occuity Glucose Monitor is still in the research and development phase.

Diabetes Screening

With the scale of diabetes a growing problem, early intervention is crucial as the longer diabetes goes undetected, the more damaging its effects can be. However for diabetes to be detected effectively, a viable, simple to use device that can be used repeatedly in a non-clinical setting is required – namely the Occuity Diabetes Screening device.

The need for early detection and Diabetes screening

We are working on the development of a diabetes screening device that will be capable of being used by both clinicians and non-clinicians. It will be available as a service in opticians, pharmacies and care homes or even for personal use by individuals themselves in entirely non-clinical settings.

 

Building on our world-leading optical technology, our screening device will have fluorescence capability. This new technology provides the capability to detect disease markers in the eye such as AGE’s (Advanced Glycation End products) in the case of diabetes and pre-diabetes or Amyloid Plaques in respect of Alzheimer’s disease.
