A boon for the opticians

At the optician's chamber the optician diagnoses the patient's problem almost entirely on how the patient describes what he sees. Sometimes the doctor fails o visualize what the patient describes and sometimes even the patient fails to report correctly. The image formed on the retina is transmitted via a set of electric signals through the optic nerve to the brain. A probe will catch these electric signals and reconstruct the image and show it on a computer screen. Comparing the image with the standard image of a reference object,the doctor can easily realize the patient's problem and also some image processing could be employed to detect which lens could be perfect for correcting the vision.

Reward: The process makes the diagnosis process more patient-parameter-independent and hence many times more reliable.
