Who We Are
At Autoyos, we believe that harnessing technology to revolutionize healthcare is the way forward. We aim to be at the forefront of the technological transformation of the eye-care industry, bridging the existing gap between care seekers and care providers. In order to address the acute lack of ophthalmic specialists and restricted usage of products/services, we have come up with intelligent Autonomous Medical Systems which can provide comprehensive eye care in non-clinical and resource-poor settings without depending on skilled manpower.
Why a Radical Solution for
Eye-care is Crucial
145.6 million people (11.2%) in India suffer from Preventive Blindness and 2 million new cases are registered each year.
There is only 1 ophthalmologist for every 100,000 people in India. This implies that, on average, there is 1 ophthalmologist for every 230 villages.
Of India's permanently blind population of 15 million people, 80% were treatable at an early stage.
Rampant Problems That We Face Today
India is set to emerge as the diabetic capital of the world by 2020. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 31.7 million people were affected by diabetes mellitus (DM) in India in the year 2000. This figure is estimated to rise to 79.4 million by 2030, the largest number in any nation in the world. Almost two-third of all Type 2 and almost all Type 1 diabetics are expected to develop diabetic retinopathy (DR) over a period of time.
