BASES OF INNOVATION
Basis if Innovation:
Red pupillary reflex seen in pictures is a normal finding in healthy eyes.
Leukocoria o white pupil reflex is a clinical sign seen in pictures or spontaneously.
White pupil reflex in children could be secondary to many eye conditions: eye cancer (retinoblastoma), cataract, intra ocular inflammations, even in a small number of patients could be explained as the projection of normal optic nerve.
With the emergence of digital cameras, this simple opportunity to diagnose a tumor vanished. Today manufacturers increasingly looking to hone appliances and red pupils no longer appear in the photographs.
MDEyeCare is a medical app. It works as a special photographic camera, optimises all variables affecting the visualisation of large pupil and the presence of red pupillary or white pupillary reflex, depending on case.
The application comes with a built in list of specialists around the world, so if you detect this abnormality in their children can go promptly to an ophthalmologist.
