"What affects 20 million people, robs the global economy of billions of dollars and can be fixed with a five-minute procedure? The answer is cataract blindness."
"HelpMeSee has now developed a smartphone app for use by local community screeners working to identify patients in the field as well as a surgical reporting system to monitor quality of care. It’s a new breed of IT… and we call it ‘Technology For Good’."
"HelpMeSee’s technology includes a focus on simulation-based learning to train tens of thousands of specialists needed to carry out cataract surgery in the developing world."
"Many eye care health workers are still slogging away filling out patient details on paper forms, taking days to transfer files, and not having time to follow up with patients after surgery. One nonprofit has come up with a solution."
"There is a global public health problem that sits quietly in the shadows of international media coverage, one that affects one child born every minute and has a comparable mortality rate of 60% in that child’s first year: blindness."
