Technological bonanza: Eye test through phones

Buzz this
Doctors in Bangalore have launched a special initiative where one can get his eyes checked medically even if he isn't physically present in front of a doctor. This all will be possible by an I-Phone application.

Eye Test ($1) is a tool that can be used to test a users sight. Users can test their near visual acuity with a Snellen Chart, record their results and then track their vision over time. The application also includes a color test to help users see the difference between what they see and what a colorblind person may see. Their is also a series of visual illusions included, each with an explanation of why it happens.
