The Folding Phoropter is a novel device developed by the Srujana Center for Innovation, L V Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad to combat the disproportionate access to tools for screening for refractive error in low resource areas. This device is extremely low-cost, disposable, easy to assemble and open-source, which means anyone can build their own following the instructions.
Inspired by Dr Manu Prakash's "Foldscope" and the Google cardboard, we re-imagined a phoropter into the most basic screening device which could be easily and scalably fabricated, improved upon and used for the betterment of eyecare.
