Ocular Telehealth SIG

The Ocular Telehealth SIG (formally the International Consortium for Ocular Telehealth (ICOT) Chapter) promotes the development and advancement of the use of telemedicine in fields related to ophthalmology, optometry and optical engineering. Ocular Telehealth participants include individuals from academia, industry, government and healthcare with an interest in providing ocular care through telecommunications technology. The Ocular Telehealth SIG focuses on eye and adnexa issues, using the eye as a window to the health status of other related bodily systems.
