Uveitis is a major cause of blindness worldwide. Early detection and accurate treatment monitoring of uveitis can prevent dramatic vision loss and eventual blindness. 





Suspecting uveitis can be challenging because it can present asymptomatically in children and infants with juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Uveitis is also missed by the non-expert clinicians in cases of red eye and conjunctivitis, leading to delayed referrals to specialists. Accurate treatment monitoring is also paramount to avoid clinical complications. This is why accurate and objective quantification of the disease severity is needed.

Due to similarities with other ocular condition, misdiagnosis or delayed treatment is possible, moreover, uveitis is often associated with systemic diseases or infections making diagnosis complex.

Low and middle income regions may also have limited access to advanced diagnostic tools and specialized expertise. This can affect timely and accurate detection of uveitis.
Uveitis screening involves counting white blood cells in the fluid behind the cornea and relies on the expertise of the ophtalmologist. The screening process with Neosonics© is done with the eye closed, the cell count is powered by AI, allowing automatic measurement in 30 seconds, and in can be used inmlow, middle and high income countries.
The device will allow the exploration of patients with specific conditions that were difficult to examine before. Its ubiquity in the health system, especially in eye care units, emergency departments and primary care, will improve early detection of uveitis. This will lead to reduced treatment costs and lower rates of blindness and vision loss associated with uveitis.
