Diabetic retinopathy is a serious complication of diabetes that causes visual impairments. The condition is already the leading cause of blindness in industrialised countries and is expected to grow in the next years. Diabetic retinopathy is treatable if diagnosed in early phases, but current screening approaches are only reaching half the patients with diabetes. Mobile eye fundus cameras have been proposed to expand screenings and reach more patients, however, there is little knowledge about the impact of mobile eye fundus cameras in clinical care or of the perspective of clinicians on using these. Drawing on interviews with clinicians, this paper outlines the potential of mobile eye fundus cameras and presents implications for design to better suit these devices to primary care settings.
