Dean Johnson, Managing Director, Haag-Streit UK, commented,“We are delighted that the DRS has been passed by the NSC. The product has proved very popular within the Optometry sector because of its single-button operation which enables the DRS to automatically capture and store a high-quality image in less than 30 seconds per eye. The new enhanced features, and the fact it is recommended for use in National Screening Programme for Diabetic Retinopathy, will make the product even more attractive to Optometrists, especially within the NHS”.
