Smart Vision Labs has created such an invention with the help of the iPhone and its low-light 8-megapixel camera. In short, what it does is enable is quick and inexpensive eye prescription diagnosis with a portable lens hooked up to an iPhone. The invention allows doctors to carry around in their pockets what used to require a visit to the optometrist’s office.
