NHS Forth Valley Eye Health SBRI Briefing Event

We are launching a new SBRI challenge across NHS Scotland in Eye Health. Join us for a 90 minute webinar to hear about the challenge. The challenge is to pioneer next generation home vision testing, so that it can be done at home, in school and in under-served communities, with live remote supervision from healthcare professionals - Dr Iain Livingstone, NHS Forth Valley. Eye problems will be more easily detected, monitored, and managed to prevent sight loss. The project will bring together low-cost digital solutions and sources of relevant information to solve the challenges
