PEEK RETINA is a clip-on camera adapter that gives high quality images of the back of the eye and the retina. This helps us to diagnose cataracts, glaucoma and many other eye diseases, ready for treatment. It has been developed by an award-winning team of experts in eye care, engineering and technology. Peek Retina combines both a traditional ophthalmoscope and a retinal camera in a mobile phone, providing a portable, affordable and easy way to carry out comprehensive examinations.

It sits neatly over the top of the device allowing a healthcare worker to easily take high-quality images of the back of the eye. It feels much less intrusive for the patient too. The Indiegogo campaign to fund PEEK became one of the top-ten of all time on the crowd-funding platforms health section.
