The Phelcom Eyer from Brazil is a high-resolution, non-mydriatic, portable and cloud-connected retinal camera. While access to well-equipped ocular clinics is commonly available only in urban centres, exams are often unaffordable. With the Eyer, health professionals can diagnose challenging eye disorders in remote field campaigns, bedside exams, as well as via telehealth. Primary care exams can be done anywhere, in drug stores, basic health units or in a small general clinic, resulting in better diagnostics and savings for the health sector.
