Clin Ophthalmol 2017 14;11:1301-1307. Epub 2017 Jul 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, The Byers Eye Institute, Stanford University School of Medicine.

Objective: We aimed at evaluating the ability of individuals without ophthalmologic training to quickly capture high-quality images of the cornea by using a smartphone and low-cost anterior segment imaging adapter (the "EyeGo" prototype).

Methods: Seven volunteers photographed 1,502 anterior segments from 751 high school students in Varni, India, by using an iPhone 5S with an attached EyeGo adapter. Primary outcome measures were median photograph quality of the cornea and anterior segment of the eye (validated Fundus Photography vs Ophthalmoscopy Trial Outcomes in the Emergency Department [FOTO-ED] study; 1-5 scale; 5, best) and the time required to take each photograph.

Clinical Practice: A Proposed Standardized Ophthalmological Assessment for Patients with Cystinosis.

Ophthalmol Ther 2017 Jun 5;6(1):93-104. Epub 2017 May 5.

Department of Ophthalmology, University Hospitals Leuven, Louvain, Belgium.

Cystinosis is a rare autosomal recessive disease with an incidence of approximately 1 case per 100,000-200,000 live births. Over the years, gaining in-depth knowledge of the disease has led to vast improvement in patient life expectancy. However, debilitating, extra-renal manifestations such as eye disease, in particular corneal crystal deposition and its associated photophobia, still occur frequently, regardless of patient age and notwithstanding the increased implementation of systemic therapy.
