Medical world looks with open eyes at iPhone app of 11-year-old

The medical world is staring open-mouthed at an iPhone app called Ogler Eyescan. Not only because the application can quickly detect eye diseases and disorders, but also because it was developed by an 11-year-old girl.

The 11-year-old Leena Rafeeq from India is not only the brains behind Ogle Eyescan, but also the person who managed to develop the iPhone app itself. Spicy game of bizarre, if you ask our WANT colleague Mark Hofman.

Revolutionary iPhone app from 11-year-old

Times change. When I was 11 years old, I was still eating buckets of clay at kindergarten (slow student), where in 2023 someone of 11 is turning the medical world upside down. Leena Rafeeq is the brains behind the iPhone app Ogler Eyescan and knows how to tackle a tough medical issue.

At the age of 10, Leena threw the Harry Potter books aside and dived deep into the world of ophthalmology. She learned about various diseases and the technology needed to bring the vision she already had back then to life.

With no help from third parties, she got behind her computer and decided to develop the iPhone app herself. The result is Ogler Eyescan: a medical app that can detect eye diseases and disorders by means of the camera system of the smartphone.

We should think of, for example, white ring, eye melanoma, Pterygium and cataract. The medical world is watching with open eyes and, thanks to an 11-year-old girl, sees what technology can bring to healthcare. Did you know that your eyes can say a lot about how likely you are to die?

It runs in the family

The story is unique, but within the Rafeeq family, Leena is not the first to achieve such achievements. For example, her younger sister Hana (9) is also a very talented developer who received recognition from Apple CEO Tim Cook last year.

Of course, that doesn’t make Leena’s performance any less impressive. The 11-year-old developer is an inspiration to people all over the world. Leena is homeschooled and has the knowledge about developing from her parents, who are both Fintech entrepreneurs.

While the Ogler Eyescan iPhone app is a significant achievement in its own right, I can’t help but think that this is just the beginning of Leena’s impact on healthcare. What a little boss.
