A smartphone add-on that can test eyesight.
There are over 4 billion people around the world in need of glasses.
Some people have the time and resources to book an appointment with an optician, take an eye exam, and fill a prescription for a pair of glasses. Many others don’t have access to this simple procedure – but they do have access to a smartphone.
In India, 133 million people are visually impaired, with many living in poor, remote villages. An ideal trial market for EyeNetra, a mobile and affordable eye test solution. The optic device, NetraG, is plugged into a smartphone and uses software and basic optic technology to measure the refractive error of an eye – all at a cost of less than $5. For those requiring more than just eye glasses, the patients data can be shared with remote experts in real time.
With EyeNetra, vision correction is no longer tied to an expensive trip to the doctor. The solution transforms any smartphone into a affordable and portable optic testing device, giving people in the most remote rural areas access to affordable eye examinations.
