OUI & Gertrude’s Children’s Hospital
OUI’s Smart Eye Camera (SEC), is a smartphone attachment that can record and evaluate ophthalmological images and videos that can be shared with ophthalmologists for remote diagnosis. SEC can diagnose diseases in the eyelids, conjunctiva, cornea, anterior chamber, iris, crystal lens and anterior vitreous. OUI’s portable slit-lamp can be compared to an existing slit-lamp microscope. In this pilot, Gertrude’s Children’s Hospital in Kenya will leverage OUI’s SEC to connect ophthalmologists in Nairobi to clinical officer in rural areas. This remote-diagnosis model aims to pilot a hub and spoke approach to screen pediatric patients in rural areas, and improve reach, efficiency and quality of pediatric eye diagnosis and medical solutions.
