Canon Medical signs Sense Medical as UK distributor

Sense Medical will be the exclusive distributor for the company’s ophthalmic eye care products in the United Kingdom and Ireland


Canon Medical Systems Europe has signed an agreement making Sense Medical its new UK distributor.

Sense Medical, which has an established relationship in the NHS market, will be the exclusive distributor of Canon’s ophthalmic eye care products in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Abdul Jahangir, managing director at Sense Medical, commented: “The new partnership with Canon is a unique model for us, which sets us apart from a normal distributorship.”

Jahangir explained that Sense Medical wants to build on the strength of the Canon Eyecare brand in the UK and Ireland markets.

Adel Bencheikh, Canon Eyecare director, said: “We were looking at the UK market as one of the major markets for eye care imaging growth and now with Sense Medical’s existing expertise in retinal imaging and strong customer care, we are confident that our new partnership will benefit our existing and future customers.”

Over time, Canon Eyecare has widened its product scope to serve both the NHS market and High Street businesses, Bencheikh added.

Canon Medical Systems’ optical coherence tomography (OCT) products, Xephilio OCT-S1, and Xephilio OCT-A1, will be showcased at 100% Optical 2023 on the M420 stand.
