Diabetic Retinopathy is a complication of diabetes causing damage to the retina, eventually leading to blindness. The cost of state of the art retinal imaging devices required for identifying this disorder lies in the range $10,000 – $25,000. This makes them inaccessible for the population in rural areas or developing countries. We aim to develop a device under $400 which can provide reasonable quality retinal images to clinicians.
The OIO uses a 20D lens, mirrors, light source and camera, a raspberry pi and a touch interface to achieve this. The lens and mirror system are used to compress the optical path and focus the light from retina onto the camera. The camera and pi act as the processing unit and display live images on the display allowing the clinician to easily image the retina.
