Prototype Smartphone App Can Help Parents Detect Early Signs of Eye Disorders in Children, Study Finds

Baylor University

A smartphone application has been developed that can help parents detect early signs of eye disease by searching their children’s photographs for traces of leukocoria, also known as “white eye.” The prototype app (CRADLE: ComputeR Assisted Detector LEukocoia) was engineered to autonomously search for the disorder in casual photos of children and make them available under a free download called “White Eye Detector.” The free app has been made available for Android and iPhone devices.
