Abstract

Given the rapid everyday developments in technology, it will be rewarding for patients and ophthalmologists to use a mobile system in order to perform eye examinations and provide accurate triage or diagnosis of medical conditions. This will increase the delivery of healthcare services such as reducing physician travel during off-hours and decreasing the wait-time for patients. We identified the design challenges to create an easy-to-use, as well as a low-cost medical device and not only considered the portability of the system but also housed the related items such as camera, power supplies and lighting system in a compact case.
