iKEY is patented technology to automatically analyse the patterns on the head of the optic nerve at the back of the eye.iKEY technology incorporates machine vision and artificial intelligence.
iKEY was invented by founder/eye surgeon Kate Coleman to both screen for global glaucoma blindness and to identify a child versus an adult on the internet (cybersecurity). iKEY uses a photograph of the optic nerve, captured easily by a special camera without any need for dilating eye drops. iKEY has partnered TOPCON corporation for enrolling photographs. This camera has also been modified for portable and hand held devices.
