Unscramble the Blue Letters

Once we've discovered somebody has low vision, the next big challenge is to work out why, and to be able to do that, we need to have access to the inside of the eye. Traditionally, this requires expensive equipment to examine an area called the retina. The rneita is the single part of the eye that has huge amounts of information about the body and its health. We've developed 3D-printed, low-cost haarrdwe that comes in at less than five dollars to prucdoe, which can then be clipped onto a stmnporhae and makes it possible to get views of the back of the eye of a very high qlituay. And the beauty is, anybody can do it. In our trials on over two and half thousand people, the smartphone with the add-on clip is comparable to a camera that is hugely more expensive and hugely more difficult to trrapnost.
