Peek, the Portable Eye Examination Kit, leverages smartphone technology to provide a range of ophthalmic diagnostic tests in low-income settings, thus empowering health workers to diagnose eye diseases and to manage and monitor patients within the community. A low-cost adapter on the phone native camera provides Peek with retinal imaging functionalities. The intrinsic connectivity of the smartphone allows transmission of geo-tagged patient records and, potentially, diagnostic data. The ease of use and field of view of the Peek ophthalmoscope represents a seed change in handheld direct ophthalmoscopy. The intrinsic telemedicine capabilities show promise in remote diagnostics and in integration with screening programs.
