Optos strikes deal with OPSM

Medical retinal imaging company Optos has received an order of 250 devices from optician giant OPSM in Australia and New Zealand.

Medical retinal imaging company Optos has received an order of 250 devices from optician giant OPSM in Australia and New Zealand.

Optos will exclusively supply Daytona retinal imaging technology devises on rental contracts this year, on top of the 160 already installed last year.

OPSM's exclusivity over the commercial supply of Daytona devices in Australia and New Zealand has been extended to 2016.

All OPSM stores will incorporate the technology as part of its eye care services.

Chief Executive Officer Roy Davis said he hopes the new order would boost results in the second quarter.

"Second quarter performance will be lower than planned, however, the additional order of 250 devices by a major corporate such as OPSM is a clear demonstration of both the value and potential of our technology," he said.

"This will effectively make Daytona an OPSM network-wide technology. We believe this validates not only the importance of Daytona to eye care practices, but also our strategy to partner with OPSM in Australia and New Zealand."

He said forecasts for the full-year remain unchanged but expects a more weighted second half than previously anticipated.

Shares plunged 13.81% to 173.25p at 09:22 Wednesday.
