Ramesh Raskar, creator of Vision Blocks, shares eyeMITRA, a new tool for retinal analysis, at TEDMED.
eyeMITRA offers a simple solution for early detection of Diabetic Retinopathy (DR), the leading cause of adult blindness. Today, there are over 366 million diabetics globally and this figure is expected to rise dramatically in the next decade. About a quarter of this population comprise individuals who either have or will go on to develop DR.
MITRA stands for MIT retinal analysis, Mitra is Sanskrit for ‘friend’.
