Topcon donates a retinal camera to Vision Care for Homeless People

The latest technology in retinal cameras has been presented to the London centre of Vision Care for Homeless People by Topcon, bringing a new level of screening to this vulnerable group.

Abdul Jahangir, London Area Sales Manager for Topcon, presented the Topcon NW100 to the VCHP Crisis clinic last week, commenting:

“We are delighted to make this donation and it is somewhere that we can clearly add a real benefit to the charity.”

First patient to be screened on the technology was 47 year old ex-British Army soldier, Chris Lathan, who served for more than 12 years and is now homeless.

After a successful fundus screening he was dispensed reading glasses which have transformed his daily life.
