Heidelberg AppWay - Artificial intelligence becomes reality in ophthalmology!

Many studies have already shown that artificial intelligence can make many things easier in ophthalmology. Until now, however, there has been a lack of real-life examples of application in clinical practice. The path from the development of an algorithm to the clinic was also a major hurdle. With Heidelberg AppWay, Heidelberg Engineering has now developed a solution to these problems.


MIKAJAKI- A start-up is developing the all-in-one solution for automated, multimodal imaging.

Digital and remote ophthalmic patient care has always been limited by the availability of multimodality and automated imaging. The start-up MIKAJAKI is now trying to solve this problem with their EyeLib system and offers an Artificial Intelligence supported all-in-one solution for automated and intelligent ophthalmic diagnostics. In the following interview, CEO Yann Voillot tells us what EyeLib can do for us ophthalmologists and for the patients.
