Abstract

Ophthalmology requires specialist care that is not available in general clinics. The long time it takes for a patient to see an eye specialist can adversely affect their medical condition. On the other hand, a general physician might transfer a patient to see a specialist based on their initial suspicions, which turns out to be a false alarm once the patient is examined by an ophthalmologist. We investigated the possibility of creating a simple, inexpensive medical device that will allow patients or general physicians to remotely send their medical images of a human eye to be immediately evaluated by an ophthalmologist.
