Thank you so much for your donation. With your help, we have already raised $3000 with two months remaining until our trip.
We're very excited to announce that we're adding another study to our trip. Ophthalmological care is hard to come by in underserved areas such as Bocas del Toro. We're trying to change this by using inexpensive lenses attached to smartphone cameras to take images of eye diseases. These images will be stored and brought back to UC Irvine for analysis and diagnosis by ophthalmologists. If these lenses are shown to be effective, this would both reduce the need for expensive ophthalmological equipment and an in-person ophthalmologist in global healthcare projects.
Once again, thank you for your support. Please continue to help us by spreading the word about our projects and share our crowdfunding page with your friends, family, and colleagues. As always, feel free to contact any of our team members with questions.
