    DOG - Deutsche Ophthalmologische Gesellschaft e.V.
    eHealth and Smartphones have introduced new opportunities in eye care, last but not least in low-resource settings. Smartphones, telemedicine and automated image analysis for screening may significantly improve eye care provision in the low- and middle-income settings. This symposium will give an overview on recent and potential future developments.

    Smartphone ophthalmoscopy: present and future directions

    Referent/in: Andrea Russo, Brescia, Italy

    Retinal imaging has considerably improved since the first photographic images of the ocular fundus were taken near the end of the 19th century. They are usually taken with bulky equipment requiring patients to be seated upright, which is often difficult for hospitalized or bedridden patients. To overcome these limitations, we took advantage of physicians’ pervasive adoption of smartphones, which are equipped nowadays with state-of-the-art cameras. We devel- oped a small optical device, which is attached magnetically to a smartphone, to conveniently examine and record videos or photographs of the retina. 

    11:39 – 11:48

    VISION 2020 and eHealth – a winning combination

    Referent/in: Heiko Philippin, Freiburg

    Recent developments in eHealth have contributed to VISION 2020: The Right to Sight. A critical evaluation of different concepts and applications will be presented.
    11:48 – 11:57

    Cost effectiveness of telemedical smartphone-based diabetic retinopathy screening in India

    Referent/in: Maximilian Wintergerst, Bonn

    Insufficient diabetic eye disease screening in low- and middle-income countries puts millions of patients with diabetes at risk of irreversible vision loss. Therefore, novel screening strategies including task-delegation and tele-medicine are urgently needed. Smartphone-based fundus imaging (SBFI) could potentially fill this gap, as it allows for low-cost mobile fundus examination using an adapter on a smartphone and delegation to paramedical staff. We evaluate the cost effectiveness of a telemedical smartphone-based diabetic eye disease screening program in India.

    11:57 – 12:06

    eHealth for chronic disease management in Africa: a non-ophthalmologist’s perspective

    Referent/in: Daniel Opoku, Berlin

    12:06 – 12:15

    Makula App: digital assistant for patients with AMD

    Referent/in: Anke Tripp, Münster

    Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in adults aged over 50 years. Disease Management represents a daily life challenge for patients and relatives. Adherence phenomenoms, patient information and quality assurance represent major topics. Real-life clinical outcomes of patients treated with IVOM therapy are often inferior to results from randomized clinical trials. Consequently AMD-Netz developed and provides the Makula App, whose outcome and perspectives are under evaluation.
