This study describes the development of an attachment for a smart tablet to stream live video information of an eye examination through the slit lamp.
A tablet attachment was developed that enables the live streaming of video from the slit lamp from the rural vision centers of the LVPEI network. Video streaming solution like skype lite was used to transmit the same. The eyeSmart app was utilized for the documentation of the clinical information of the patients.
A tablet attachment of eyeSmart cyclops was developed and piloted in 3 vision centers of the LVPEI network.
The use of real time video transmission illustrates a novel teleophthalmology solution in low resource settings to screen rural populations. The ability to transmit live video enables gathering more information than static images.
