Innovation in Eye Care
Convenors: Neil Murray and Andrew Bastawrous
The majority of people with limited access to eye care are those living in remote and challenging locations. As the gap between eye care providers and those needing eye care continues to increase, innovative ways of tackling the problems must be explored.
The last decade has seen a huge rise in the accessibility of mobile telecommunication devices. At the same time there has been a re-tasking of the applicability of existing technologies to eye care, with several examples proving beneficial in the delivery of eye care at scale.
This course will showcase a range of innovative technologies being applied in eye care. It will highlight the potential that they bring to extending access to those currently most in need.
A panel discussion will explore opportunities to integrate some of the innovations described to work together towards achieving universal eye health.
