AnEye: Extending the Reach of Anterior Segment Ophthalmic Imaging

Eye exams via a slit lamp are critical in early diagnosis of diseases such as cataracts, corneal injury, and pterygia, in order to avert vision loss. The slit lamp is one of the most versatile tools in an ophthalmologist's clinic, but is big, expensive, and is designed with specialized ophthalmic clinics in mind. AnEye is a suite of portable, computationally driven solutions that leverage modern optics and commercially available consumer electronics to extend the reach of examinations of the anterior segment of the eye well beyond large hospitals and clinics, into resource-constrained settings such as rural mass-screening camps, mobile ophthalmology clinics, and even primary care.
