Increased smart device use has inevitably led to a higher dependency on smart devices, resulting in less time spent engaging in physical and outdoor activities. Overtime, or even in the short term, these habits can result in risk factors associated with myopia, such distance of device from one’s eyes or bad body posture.
To target this phenomenon, plano was thus conceptualized to incorporate screening tools for early detection of those in danger of myopia with the use of big data. This data is thus used to refine intervention measures and prevention strategies for eye health in the future as well.
Plano founder and CEO, Dr. Mo Dirani shared that, “plano is a ‘smart solution’ to better manage device usage behaviour” that many other countries would find useful.
