Ocuco has acquired a minority stake in Ocumetra, a data science solutions company, and will integrate Ocumetra’s tools into its practice management software.

Ocumetra was founded in 2020 by professors James Loughman and Ian Flitcroft to provide personalised myopia solutions and decision support to practitioners.

CEO at Ocuco Leo Mac Canna joined Ocumetra’s board as part of the equity deal and said Ocuco saw myopia management as a key opportunity for the industry.

‘Integrating Ocumetra’s clinical tools into our next-generation PMS brings the clinical support that ECPs need to support this new area within their practice management and EMR system,’ he said.
