Today's Cameras...

Durban Optical is currently researching and developing technology in the field of computer vision to go beyond biometrics and to delve into the world of automated optometry. Turning every digital camera enabled device into an autorefractor and a pupillary distance measuring device. This technology will expand the reach of the eyecare professions for the purposes of first line screening so that people who have no access to eyecare, visioncare or opticalcare are able to be screened for optometric purposes. This technology will empower professional practitioners, not replace them.
