Collaborating to Develop a Low-cost Keratoconus Diagnostic Solution. With Dr. Kaushik Murali and Dr. Mohit Jain
Microsoft Research India Podcast
by Microsoft Research India
2y ago
Episode 011January 18, 2022 Keratoconus is a severe eye disease that affects the cornea, causing it to become weak and develop a conical bulge. Keratoconus, if undiagnosed and entreated, can lead to partial or complete blindness in people affected by it. However, the equipment needed to diagnose keratoconus is expensive and non-portable, which makes early detection of keratoconus inaccessible to large populations in low and middle income countries. This makes it a leading cause for partial or complete blindness amongst such populations. Doctors from Sankara Eye Hospital, Bengaluru and researc ..read more
