The Breakthrough – ATAC
The ability to identify and measure ocular inflammation is vital in the management of eye diseases. It is particularly important in the areas of uveitis (the fourth leading cause of blindness worldwide) and post cataract surgery (most common ophthalmic surgery). Currently, ocular inflammation is measured via clinical examination through a slit lamp microscope or indirect ophthalmoscope. These methods are subject to clinical interpretation and variability between observers.
