Ground-breaking new Australian designed and manufactured medical technology wins the highest accolade which an engineering project can receive from Engineers Australia – The Sir William Hudson Award.

Cylite’s HP-OCT™ an Australian researched, designed, and manufactured ophthalmic diagnostic technology is close to launching their novel technology both locally and internationally. Technology that will go head-to-head in an area dominated by multinational incumbents from Germany, Japan, and the USA.

  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging technique used every day by Ophthalmologists and Optometrists to investigate, diagnose and manage patients with ocular conditions.
  • Approximately 90% of blindness and vision impairment among both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians is preventable or treatable if detected early.
