Eyesight for 1 Dollar per Child

Pranav is raising money on behalf of the organization Pragathi in order to finance a project to provide cheap and effective eye screening and treatment to hundreds of kids in the city of Bangalore, India.

Here is PowerPoint that goes into more detail about the project.

What makes this project new and innovative is that it uses a platform called PEEK Vision. This is an app that can be downloaded onto a smartphone and can use the camera of the device to scan the retina of a patient and diagnose them in real time.

For more information about PEEK Vision, click this link. 

This is a TED Talk given by the co-founder and CEO, Andrew Bastawrous 

The app is paired with a simple, 3 dollar (USD) camera attachment that can allow for more in-depth analysis of a patient's eye.

Pragathi and the Karnataka Health Ministry will monitor the children from the initial examination through treatment. The whole process will cost roughly one dollar per child treated. So please, help a lot more!!!
