Andrea Russo, MD University of Brescia - Italy Comparison of Smartphone Ophthalmoscopy with Slit- lamp Biomicroscopy for Grading Diabetic Retinopathy
Prospective Study Setting: Ophthalmic Diabetic Center of “Spedali Civili di Brescia” – Italy 120 consecutive patients with diabetes smartphone ophthalmoscopy retinal slit-lamp examination Prospective Study Setting: Ophthalmic Diabetic Center of “Spedali Civili di Brescia” – Italy 120 consecutive patients with diabetes smartphone ophthalmoscopy retinal slit-lamp examination Study Design
The eye fundus was not gradable for DR in 9 eyes (13.3%) by smartphone ophthalmoscopy and in 4 eyes (3.3%) by biomicroscopy because of cataract and/or small pupil diameter. An exact agreement was found in 204 (85%) of 240 eyes and an agreement within one step was observed in 232 eyes (96.7%). Simple κ was 0.78 (95% confidence interval 0.71–0.84; P < 0.001), showing a substantial agreement.

Conclusion In conclusion, this study shows that smartphone ophthalmoscopy with the D-Eye system can accurately detect retinal lesions for grading DR and might be used as a screening tool for diabetic retinopathy.
Visual Field Screening in Nepal Using an iPad to Test Normal Controls, Persons with Glaucoma and Individuals with Diabetic Retinopathy Alan L Robin, MD - Depts of Ophthalmology, Univ of Maryland and Johns Hopkins Univ Chris A. Johnson, PhD, DSc - Dept of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Univ of Iowa Suman Thapa. MD, PhD - Nepal Glaucoma Eye Clinic, Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology, Kathmandu, Nepal Nothing to disclose
Screening for Glaucoma Controversial – Cost-benefit ratio is not favorable for general screening. However can target “at risk” populations (persons of African descent, hispanic latinos, elderly, persons with limited or no access to traditional eye and health care) The purpose of this study was to perform visual field screening in Nepal using a low- cost program available on the iPad tablet.
Background luminance is 31.5 asb (10 cd/m2) 96 test locations (right eye format is shown to the Right) – the left eye is a mirror image of the right eye format. Target size is a Goldmann Size V (1.73 deg diameter) Target luminance is 250 asb, 80 cd/m2, or 16 dB) Each quadrant is tested one at a time (upper right, upper Left, lower left, lower right). A red fixation point moves from one corner of the display to another.
Participants Inclusion Criteria: Complete Eye Exam (anterior segment biomicroscopy, ophthalmoscopy of the optic nerve head, retinal nerve fiber layer and macula, 20/60 or better visual acuity, fundus photography, no other ocular, neurologic or systemic diseases other than glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy. More than 400 eyes evaluated with Visual Fields Easy. Most participants also underwent Humphrey Field Analyzer 24-2 SITA Standard tests for comparison purposes. 210 Normal Control Eyes, 198 with HFA results 183 Glaucoma Eyes, 160 with HFA results 18 Diabetic Retinopathy Eyes, 15 with HFA results
Conclusions It is possible to perform visual field screening in remote areas of the world. The Visual Fields Easy performed quite well on a iPad, and demonstrated good correlations with HFA test values. Testing time was an average of 3 minutes and 18 seconds for all three groups. Future Directions Optimize target presentation pattern (are 96 visual field locations necessary ?) Reduce the testing time (the Matrix frequency doubling perimeter performs screening in 30-60 seconds per eye). Reduce the false positive rate (retest missed points and those that disagree with their neighbors). Remove the need to tap the screen.
Indications Imaging and photodocumentation of the anterior and posterior segments of the eye Designed for use in emergency room, urgent care, primary care, and optometrist offices, inpatient/hospital bedside and rural settings where expensive ophthalmic imaging equipment is unavailable. Intended for use by both eye care specialists and non-eye care specialists as well as non-M.D.’s
Smartphone cameras alone not enough Good for adnexa, lid, and conjunctiva Poor corneal, iris, chamber, and lens detail Requires digital zoom The phone alone can do 90% of the work… Just need the right OPTICS and LIGHTING With EyeGo Without EyeGo
Coming soon… In collaboration with DigiSight Technologies, a HIPAA compliant app is being developed that captures EyeGo photos and uploads them to secure server along with visual acuity testing data
Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Study Study site: Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, San Jose, CA Dichotomized for referral decision via phone images versus clinical exam Data collected on 100 eyes (50 patients) to date Excellent agreement between phone and clinical exam for both retinopathy grade and referral decision Study ongoing

Rapid and Cost-effective Orbital Prosthesis Fabrication via Automated Non-contact Facial Topography Mapping and 3-D Printing Landon Grace, PhD 1 ; Mauro Fittipaldi 1 ; David T. Tse, MD 2 1 Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of Miami, Coral Gables, FL USA 2 Department of Ophthalmology, University of Miami School of Medicine, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Miami, FL USA Supported by the Dr. Nasser Ibrahim Al-Rashid Orbital Vision Research Center at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute Abstract PO467
Purpose Orbital prosthesis fabrication is a costly, time-intensive process accomplished by a limited number of trained prosthetists. Digital scanning is capable of generating a perfect representation of patient facial topography, including the orbital defect. 3D printing is capable of producing a high-resolution, anatomic replication of the patient’s facial topography. Access to orbital prostheses is limited by proximity to a prosthetist and the expensive manual fabrication process. The proposed method converts prosthesis development to a low- cost, non-contact, standardized protocol which is easily adaptable to a remote setting.
Methods 1. Facial topography mapping A digital representation of the orbital defect and contralateral periorbital region is constructed using a mobile, low-cost 3D laser scanning process. Facial features are used to automatically determine the plane of symmetry, about which the topography of the periorbital region is mirrored. 2. Symmetry detection
3. Digital data manipulation The mirrored version of the contralateral periorbital region is merged with the orbital defect scan, enabling the surfaces to be meshed to define the shape of the prosthesis. 4. 3D Printing Material: PLA Resolution: 28 micron
Methods 5. Polymer preparation A biocompatible thermoplastic elastomer (styrene-isobutylene-styrene, or “SIBS”) is reinforced with nanoclay, nanoscale titanium oxide, zinc oxide, and other particulates to match patient’s skin tone while providing protection against degradation. 6. Injection molding and detailing The resulting polymer nanocomposite is injection molded to form the shape of the prosthesis, followed by the addition of eyelashes and ocular surface. Posterior surface conforms to contour of exenteration socket
Results Cosmetic match Prosthesis color is easily and successfully tailored to match patient skin tone Prosthesis fit Posterior - Patient reports comfortable and secure fit Prosthetist hand-fabricated Cost: ≈ $14,000 on average Time: > 1 week Prosthetist hand-fabricated Cost: ≈ $14,000 on average Time: > 1 week 3D-printing fabrication Cost: < $500 + Ocular Time: < 8 hours Prosthesis 3D-printing fabrication Cost: < $500 + Ocular Time: < 8 hours Prosthesis Surface - Exhibits excellent conformity with facial features
Conclusion Challenges currently being addressed: – Skin tone variation Direct 3D printing of full-color elastomeric polymer still in early stages of development – Post-processing required Addition of ocular surface and eyelashes requires additional steps Custom fabrication of an orbital prosthesis is achieved via non-contact anatomy mapping and 3D printing, providing a cost-effective solution to orbital defect rehabilitation which is adaptable to a remote setting. 3D-Printed Hand-made
