Crowd-Funded Project of the Week - REBIscan

This week's Crowd-Funded Project of the Week is REBIScan, a project that increases accuracy and reduces costs of early vision screening for  amblyopia (AKA Lazy Eye).

This disease effects 1 in twenty worldwide, and current screening technology is just 55% effective.  This means that we spend way too much on treatment, and in almost half the cases we treat the wrong child.

This is a great example of a team changing the world for the better by addressing an opportunity that I had not realized existing.

Well done!
