Sharp Sight Eye Hospitals in collaboration with Logy.AI envisions has introduced AI-based screening solution to identify cataracts on the spot with 92 per cent accuracy.


This is the first time just the smartphone has been used for cataract screening leveraging artificial intelligence (AI). It is set up with the aim to build cutting-edge AI products in the healthcare domain and bridge the gap between clinical medicine and technology by training healthcare professionals in AI.


Meanwhile, the AI-based screening solution is present as a simple chatbot on WhatsApp, so that it can be used for mass screening. It wouldn’t require anyone to download any separate application as only WhatsApp is required on the phone. Also, the solution works with very low internet connectivity in rural areas.
