We keep going forward to overcome world blindness with our device Smart Eye Camera (SEC)!!


In preparation for the launching the pilot of Smart Eye Camera (SEC) in Mozambique, we have conducted two online training sessions for the Mozambican students from Ehime University who will be returning to Mozambique soon and will lead our pilot.

Today, the second session, we had a more practical test with the cooperation of the company where the international students are working as intern, where they filmed the colleagues’ eyes with the SEC app and the doctor made a diagnosis based on the videos they took.
