I detect cataracts with a mobile phone

Tired of moving his imposing ophthalmic equipment around the most remote areas of Africa, the British doctor had the idea to simplify things by developing—along with his partners—a smartphone application that enables diagnosis of people suffering from cataracts. A happy marriage between digital technology and humanitarian commitment. We want more! 


Andrew embodies modern humanitarian commitment better than anyone. A doctor filled with ideals and compassion, his approach has moved us and we are happy to know him.
