The operation of Mimo is intuitive. Because the patient puts his head on the device and embraces it for the use, he gets a comfortable feeling.

Conventional OCT devices require an assistant to prepare the patient and operate the device, and an ophthalmologist to evaluate the measured data. This is only possible in clinics and costs a lot of time.
