How does the Eyenaemia app work? Well, the traditional method would be to examine the patient’s skin hue, as well as check out traditional areas that ought to look red normally, such as the gum area, around fingernails, and under the eyelids.
This particular app will be accompanied by a color card which will function as a calibration tool. All that you need to do is to pull back your eyelid, place this color card under the eye, and snap a selfie. The app then analyzes the conjunctiva before its algorithms allow it to arrive at a prediction, letting you continue from there as to seek further professional help or not.
