Yes! You read it right. Itâ€™s all about the new Eye-Phone not the iPhone, although an iPhone can become an Eye-phoneâ€¦ The Eye-Phone in the picture above is the â€œbrain-childâ€ of a young British doctor in cooperation with a Finnish phone company.
Andrew Bastawrous from the London School of Hygiene and tropical Medicine connected to the telephone an Ophthalmoscope. So, he can take pictures of the ocular fundus. The device is not only cheaper than the standard ophthalmological practice equipment, it is also more mobile!
The Eye-Phone can be used anywhere. For example, in Africa, where blindness is often but ophthalmologist are scarce. The findings can be easily communicated to any medical center via E-mail or wireless LAN.
