Getting “a little help from our friends”

Dr. AlazardBy Dr. Gerónimo Alazard.

Smartphone based apps have become great job aids for the workplace, and ophthalmology is not an exception. You can find more than 200 apps related to our specialty.

These apps cover different aspects of our daily work such as visual acuity testing, tools for patient education, searching knowledge bases and calculation tools.

One of the most useful applications is Eye Hand Book. With it we can access discussion forums, video databases, guidelines for common diseases, eye atlas, patient symptoms simulators, Amsler grids, color-vision test, contrast sensitivity test, duo-chrome test, fluorescent light, nearby vision test, fixation card, pediatric optotypes and 4 dot Worth test among others.

We can also find calculators such as the Glaucoma Risk Calculator, IOL Calculator (SRK I and SKR II), IOP-CCT Calculator, SIAC (for Induced Astigmatism calculation, courtesy of Dr. Warren Hill), Toric Calculator (Acrysof Toric Calculator).

Sharing this tool with your residents can help make their life easier.

You can find this app in the Apple and Android stores.
