Have you heard about glaucoma? No? Don’t worry. First let us clear the concept of glaucoma. It is nothing but a type of eye diseases that damages the optic nerve and causes loss of vision. Open-angle glaucoma is the most common type while closed-angle glaucoma is the less common. Vision loss caused due to glaucoma is permanent. Yes!!! You heard it right!!! PERMANENT!!!
Well, is there anything that we can do? Of course!!! You can recognize the symptoms of glaucoma and avoid it before its occurrence. How? Your question is valid. Most of the people are not aware of the disease. Most of them are aware, but by the time they recognize the symptoms, it’s too late.
But Wills Eye Hospital has solved the problem. It has developed a glaucoma app. This app is known as Glaucoma from Will Eye. The hospital took 2 complete years to build this app. It was developed with the help of Drexel University’s iSchool and College of Engineering. Before the app was released, a thorough analysis was done about what features they should integrate in the app. This analysis was done by taking into the considerations of patients. Moreover, it also helps in understanding the symptoms of the glaucoma.
So friends, what do you think? Will the app serve its purpose of development? Will it be helpful to the world? Do let us know what you think. Comment your thoughts and views. Also let us know your suggestions. They are important to us and will be appreciated.
