Device that makes smart phone an eye doctor!
New York: What about a smart phone that can click high-resolution pictures of the front and back of the eye that can help specialists sitting in metros advise you in places where health care is less accessible?
With two inexpensive adapters developed by researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine in California, this is now possible.
“The adapters make it easy for anyone with minimal training to take a picture of the eye and share it securely with other health practitioners or store it in the patient`s electronic record,” explained Robert Chang, assistant professor of ophthalmology at Stanford and one of the developers.
This technology can increase access to eye care services as well as improve the ability to advise on patient care remotely.
“Adapting smart phones for the eye has the potential to revolutionise the delivery of eye care especially in the developing world where opthalmologists are few and far between,” added lead author David Myung.
