Close Care Gaps, Prevent Blindness


IDx-DR is an AI diagnostic system that autonomously diagnoses patients for diabetic retinopathy and macular edema

With IDx-DR you get:

  • Diagnostic results at the point-of-care
  • No need for specialist overread or telemedicine call backs
  • A simple user interface
  • Customized workflow integration solutions

The Problem: Every Year, Over 60,000 People Go Blind from Diabetic Retinopathy

How IDx-DR Works


Using a fundus camera, the trained operator captures two images per eye


The images are submitted to IDx-DR

Our Approach to AI Driven Diagnostics

AI the Right Way

IDx-DR was modeled to think like a physician and make decisions based on the same clinical disease detectors that eye care specialists would use.

  • Diagnostic AI built on an ethical foundation
  • Diagnostic results at point-of-care
  • Infinitely scalable

High Performance in a
Real-World Clinical Setting


IDx-DR was validated against patient outcomes using a surrogate outcome standard to keep patient safety the main priority. In the pivotal clinical trial, IDx-DR referred 100% of patients with at least moderate diabetic retinopathy and more than 96% of patients with diabetic macular edema.


In our pivotal clinical trial, IDx-DR avoided 91% of unnecessary specialty visits by capturing a result that is negative for diabetic retinopathy and macular edema at the point-of-care.


IDx-DR has been trained and validated on over 2M images to mitigate bias and ensure the system works equally well for all people, regardless of sex, race, or ethnicity. For more information, read our pivotal trial.

Front-Line Care Providers

IDx-DR is for medical professionals who want to provide patients with rigorously validated and ethically designed diagnostic results at the point-of-care, allowing for more comprehensive diabetes care and improved performance with diabetic eye exam quality measures.

Ophthalmologists & Optometrists

IDx-DR is for eye care providers to help address disparities and improve equity in care as part of the diabetic eye exam delivery model. IDx-DR outputs can direct more actionable referrals, identifying patients with diabetes, not already under the care of an eye care provider, who are most likely to need timely vision saving interventions.
