PURPOSE: To assess variability in corneal ulcer measurements between ophthalmologists and reduce clinician-dependent variability using semiautomated segmentation of the ulcer from

BACKGROUND: Optic disc edema can be an important indicator of serious neurological disease, but is poorly detected using the direct ophthalmoscope.
PURPOSE: To compare cup-to-disc ratio (CDR) measurements from images taken with a portable, 45-degree nonmydriatic fundus camera to images from a traditional tabletop mydriatic fun
PURPOSE: To analyze predictors of image quality for a handheld nonmydriatic fundus camera used for screening of vision-threatening diabetic retinopathy.
Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the leading cause of new-onset blindness in adults. Telemedicine is a validated, cost-effective method to improve monitoring. However, little is known of patients’ attitudes toward telemedicine for DR. Our study explores factors that influence patients’ attitudes toward participating in telemedicine.
In this study, teleophthalmology researchers at the Center for Eye Policy and Innovation compared remote, image-based patient consultations to in-person consultations at emergency department and inpatient hospital settings.
