(PRESS RELEASE) IbisVision, the groundbreaking Glasgow company whose platform allows opticians to perform remote eye tests with patients in any location, has signed an agreement that allows its technology to be used across India, the world’s second most populous nation, aiming to improve eye health and avoid illnesses that can lead to blindness among its 1.3 billion citizens.

The agreement, with Pulse Active Stations Network, allows for IbisVision’s remote technology to be rolled out in “Smart Health Kiosks” dotted around the country’s infrastructure. At present there are kiosks in 150 locations such as Delhi’s Metro network, with Pulse planning to install its kiosks into 10,000 locations within the next three years. The deal will help generate considerable international interest in IbisVision, and is also a precursor to other possible agreements for similar technologies in the US.

Central to IbisVision’s mission is to ensure eye healthcare is made available to those who struggle to gain access to this important aspect of wellbeing. The kiosks are portable and are able to be transported out to more remote areas where healthcare options are limited. IbisVision’s Amsler test technology looks to detect for unusual elements in an individual’s vision, a significant benefit in a country where 30 million people are blind due to cataracts and another 1.2 million people lose their vision from glaucoma-related complications.

The kiosks themselves measure a number of health factors and provide information on how to maintain wellness. Pulse has found that the Covid 19 pandemic has led to an increased awareness among young working people of the importance of managing their health, and the kiosks provide both affordable and convenient access to health tests for busy commuters across the fast-growing Indian economy.

Commenting on the agreement IbisVision CEO Mark Rogers said: “If you were looking for the ideal place to springboard your international growth, you couldn’t choose any better than India, where a rapidly expanding economy and vast population mean there is huge untapped demand for eyecare. Pulse’s novel kiosks are the ideal way to deliver our technology to the widest number of individuals, meaning we can start right here and now in preventing loss of sight and maintaining eye health. We are very proud of an agreement and relationship that kickstarts our international expansion, increases our revenues and most importantly, saves people’s vision.”
