Currently there is no portable device that can check diseases of the aging eye such as: Glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, Diabetic retinopathy, Alzheimer’s Disease, Cataract, clinically significant macular edema, keratoconjunctivitis sicca (dry eye disorder), Sjogren’s syndrome, retinal hard exudates, ocular hypertension, uveitis.
We propose a portable device which when placed before one eye but without any physical contact, analyzes its natural infrared spectrum in order to detect molecules that reveal a potential medical condition. If a biomarker is detected, the device asks to the user to consult a medical doctor, with an indication about urgency but without disclosing any medical information. On contrary the doctor can securely access a wealth of information without needing a dedicated device.
The medical doctor proposes this tool to the patient, and is constantly in control of the device and the relation she has with her patient.
