Tele-EyeCare: Telemedicine for the Eye

Traditionally, medical care has been provided with the provider and patient in the same room at the same time. This remains important for certain parts of the examination, for in-office treatments, and for developing a connection between the provider and patient. However, in the same way that video conferencing and mobile technologies have revolutionized personal and business communication, their role in health care has also been growing. Stanford had already been leading in mobile health innovation but with the COVID-19 public health emergency, this has become even more motivating, and has resulted in accelerated implementation. At the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford, we are developing Tele-EyeCare for the present and the longer-term future.
