Digital vision screening platform designed to decrease vision loss rates for patients with eye disorders
Medical students at the Icahn School of Medicine have founded RetTech, a digital vision screening platform that aims to decrease vision loss rates for patients with eye disorders. RetTech is working closely with the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai. "We are in the middle of a revolution in digital health care where digital and medical technologies are rapidly merging in an effort to deliver improved outcomes for more patients. I think the ability to get regular vision screening for early detection would be a big win-win for both doctors and patients," said James Tsai, MD, President of NYEE and Chair of the Department of Ophthalmology at Mount Sinai.
