Did you know …..?
…..5% of preschool-aged children have vision disorders affecting their ability to learn?….. Most of those children are detected late leading to longer treatments, higher costs and a lower likelihood of good vision results.
…..A highly sophisticated photograph could help with early detection of these children, allowing them to find treatment earlier and experience better results.
MDEyeCare is a medical app working as a highly sophisticated photographic camera.
International Scientific Validation in progress.
MDEyeCare is a medical app designed for early detection of eye diseases in children.
Young children rarely complain of visual disabilities, although they could be affected by severe ones. Conditions such as ocular tumours, abnormal eye development and/or intraocular infections do not produce external changes or pain. The detection of these diseases occurs most often when parents suspect something is going wrong and take the child to the ophthalmologist. Most of the time, this occurs very late.
MDEyeCare works as a highly specialized photographic camera. It helps with earlier detection of eye disease, resulting in lower cost and far better results in vision and quality of life.
EyeCare MD is among the three finalists for the 2014 awards Avonni in Health category. On September 24 the jury will choose the winner for its eighth version. The award ceremony will take place on 6 November at 19.30hrs. National Television of Chile.
We are aware that any medical intervention should be scientifically proven to ensure effectiveness of diagnostics and patient safety. We are working towards demonstrate and certify that MD Eyecare is a tool which gives reliable results if properly applied, could become a valuable tool to improve the visual health of children worldwide.
