Ciku Mathenge, the director of training at Dr Argawal’s Eye Hospital in Rwanda, was involved in testing the device. She says that providing ophthalmoscopes to students is crucial to improve eye healthcare in resource-poor settings. “When I started my training, all I wanted was to afford my own ophthalmoscope, but I couldn’t. With cheaper devices on the market, “each and every student in my class, no matter what their background, can have an ophthalmoscope from the first day of their training without relying on donor funding”.
