         “An ophthalmology telemedicine program for developing      
                 countries using a Panoptic Ophthalmocope”

Dr. Ali Djalilian and Dr. Amir Mehralian built a portable and compact telemedicine device using a Panoptic ophthalmoscope and a cellular phone, which allows non-ophthalmologists to capture digital images of the fundus and transmit them via cellular technology. This allows UIC to expand their international health program by providing ophthalmology support to remote clinics in underserved regions around the world.
