UEIL Lab member Katherine Liu has won an impressive third place at DEBUT Challenge, which is a national NIH competition for undergraduate projects. Liu worked in a team that developed an EyePhone, which is a phone app to monitor the progress of glaucoma. EyePhone works in coordination with a cardboard VR headset to create a virtual reality field for at-home visual field testing. The device uses existing visual field-testing algorithms to assess a person’s vision outside of a doctor’s office, promoting more regular and accessible monitoring of glaucoma progression.
Congratulations Katherine Liu! The full results can be found here
