Teleophthalmology

Teleophthalmology began in 2012 as a collaboration between the Department of Ophthalmology at UHCT “Mother Teresa” and the Galway University Hospital in Ireland. A team of doctors specialized in oculoplastics diagnosed through the Telemedicine network, Albanian patients affected by different pathologies of the eyelids and annexes. After surgery  that were organized in the premises of the UHCT “Mother Teresa”, the foreign doctors conducted followed-up exams to determine the treatment outcomes via the Telemedicine network. Results of this collaboration were presented at the international conference on Telemedicine and Electronic Health Med-e-Tel 2013 (Luxembourg, April 2013).
