Allowing eye health professionals to collaborate and learn
Orbis is a nonprofit organization that works to prevent and treat blindness through training, education, advocacy, and partnerships with local healthcare organizations around the world. We partnered with Orbis to design Cybersight, an app that allows ophthalmologists to collaborate, mentor and assist fellow doctors globally, specifically in developing nations on ophthalmology cases.
Designed as an online community for Orbis eye professionals working in developing countries, Cybersight is a social platform that promotes collaboration and creates visibility across ophthalmological cases.
Designing the application would require a mobile-first design approach given how most users are typically on the ‘on the go’ while screening patients. Because users could be anywhere in the world, the app was designed, built, and localized in 6 different languages for their international users. Additional considerations were the potential hardware and bandwidth limitations in the places in which Orbis operates. This was addressed by keeping the app lean, light on features, and utilizing assets that minimized data usage.
Cybersight is available for iOS and Android devices, as well as a browser-based web app.
