Early DR Screening To Prevent Blindness

Accurate DR Screening

Drishti provides accurate Diabetic Retinopathy screening in all with AI

Drishti is not meant to replace doctors, but rather work in conjuction with specialists to provide initial screening for those who cannot afford full diagnosis. Any diagnosis from Drishti should not be taken as 100% accurate, but should be a guideline for further action. Even if you received a diagnosis of no DR, please be very careful and continue to monitor your eye situation. Continue to get free screenings if possible to ensure you do not progress into developing DR eventually.
