Your Web-based Platform for Generating Outcomes Data to Meet European Regulatory Requirements

The looming demands of European regulatory agencies for post-market outcomes data means that device companies in the eyecare space must be able to generate quality data that will be acceptable to regulators. 


If companies are to meet the need for accurate, cost-effective clinical data—both before and after device approval—they must be able to execute efficient clinical investigations that can generate the clinical data and structured reports regulators will soon demand.

To support device makers in meeting this challenge, IROC Science and EyeKor have developed a solution designed to meet specifically the challenges of post-market surveillance. This solution is based on IROC Science’s 15 years of ophthalmic clinical and regulatory expertise combined with an innovative cloud-based software platform, Excelsior™, developed by EyeKor.


For accuracy we offer a proven testing methodology, and for efficiency we incorporate a unique cloud platform that allows us to work quickly and cost-effectively. The IROC-EyeKor platform: 

  • was developed by some of Europe’s experienced ophthalmic clinical study design experts with decades of ophthalmic regulatory understanding and experience under their belts
  • is easy and quick to implement
  • provides best-in-class ophthalmic image management and data handling for rapid, accurate on-time studies
  • is economical and scalable, from small to large Phase IV studies
  • costs significantly less than dedicating an internal team
  • provides a pre-validated data flow
  • is auditable, with full data traceability
  • EyeKor’s Excelsior™ software platform is unique in having received FDA 510(k) clearance with specific indications for use as a data management system for ophthalmic clinical trials
