Moorfields Eye Hospital has developed a pilot iPad application to enable the running of virtual glaucoma clinics.

The app has been designed to save glaucoma patients numerous and often inconvenient trips to hospital and free up glaucoma specialists' time, a statement said.

The prototype informatics application remotely collects information on glaucoma patients to enable it to be viewed by specialists for diagnosis in another location. It was developed by Moorfields Eye Hospital's OpenEyes team, Charing Systems and Black Pear software.
