  • Even in the 21st century, major aspects of eye examinations are performed using manual, subjective techniques established half a century ago or more.
  • Essential eye feature measurements – pupil and cornea size, eye aperture and eye misalignment are all measured manually, subjectively with total reliance on highly skilled and expensive practitioners
  • These result in under-referrals and over-referrals, particularly for strabismus (squint) in infants and young children – a key eye condition in young children. Prevalence of strabismus is 2%-4% globally. 80% of amblyopia (“lazy eye”) is associated with strabismus
  • Contact lens fitting is more of an art than a science, with trial & error being the prevailing technique. Drop out rates average 16%. This results in patient disappointment and financial loss for the practitioner and contact lens manufacturer.
  • Oculoplastic and cosmetic surgeons use manual methods to measure lids for surgery, widely recognised as being subjective and inaccurate.
