Why is Direct Detection so Important?

Clinical studies funded by the NIH/NEI have shown that screening with blinq is a dramatically more accurate approach to measuring for amblyopia than methods which merely collect data on amblyopic risk factors (ARF).* Greater accuracy leads to a reduction in care costs while improving patient outcomes.

Why choose blinq?


The blinq Advantage

  • Reduces costly over-referrals by 70% versus ARF screening

  • Is 97% sensitive at detecting actual disease while ARF methods generally yield only 85% sensitivity at detecting the less rigorous metric of risk factors for disease

  • blinq screening may be reimbursable under category III CPT code 0469T “retinal polarization scan, ocular screening with on-site automated results, bilateral”


Empirical Results

  • Definitive “pass” and “refer” output for amblyopia, including refractive amblyopia, micro-strabismus and strabismus

  • Eliminates interpretation of confounding data


Easy to Implement

  • Ergonomically designed for portable screening where children congregate

  • Ambidextrous orb design is easy to hold and unassuming to patients

  • Captivating target challenges patients visual function

Modern Application

  • blinq is designed to meet today’s screening needs

  • Encrypted data enables screening programs to remain HIPAA compliant and secure patient privacy

  • Intuitive data management applications on the device and tandem web-based tools

  • Wirelessly “push” patient lists to blinq and “pull” screening results, eliminating the paper-trail and floating USB sticks
