Telehealth revolutionizes patient eye health with Remote Diagnostic Testing and Machine Learning: Dr. Cal Roberts of Lighthouse Guild
Developments like these in remote diagnostics are a stepping stone for the ways machine learning will impact the field of ophthalmology in the future. In eye care, testing has always been required to be performed at the doctors’ offices. My guests today are trying to change that dynamic with RemoniHealth.com, a VaaS company that has created the first telemedicine platform for population eye health. Dr. Peter Pham, an Ophthalmologist from Houston, Texas, and Dr. Sean Ianchulev, an Ophthalmologist from Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, developed online tools for testing peripheral and central visual fields to detect vision-threatening diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
