RetinaRisk” App Helps Diabetics Determine Risk of Developing Retinopathy

Seeking a way to help diabetic patients “take matters into their own hands,” Dr. Arna Gundmundsdottir of Iceland and her team sought to create a way to help people monitor their eye health. The resulting RetinaRisk app uses an algorithm that enables patients to determine “their individualized risk of developing diabetic retinopathy…” RetinaRisk considers risk factors diabetics face, such as blood glucose levels, blood pressure and gender. Launched in 2019, RetinaApp has been downloaded by nearly 800,000 people internationally. Read more about it in Forbes. Check out the website: RetinaRisk
