A new deal has been signed by Menicon and Optimed for the former company to become the exclusive distributor for CAPTIV8 communication services and i-Vue content-driven digital signage software.
The deal pertains to North America and follows Menicon's obtaining of exclusive distribution rights for Optimed's products in Japan and Taiwan.
CAPTIV8 consists of web-based 3D animation software which is used by optical professionals to enhance communication with their patients, and also allows patients to view the content on their computers and any mobile devices.
Dr Trusit Dave, director of Optimed, commented: "This reinforces our shared vision that Optimed products have a strong potential to become the new standard for facilitating patient understanding and communication about the eye and eye health."
Recently, Topcon's new high resolution Fundus camera has been approved by the English National Screening Program for Diabetic Screening for use as a national screening device for diabetic retinopathy.
