Alexander Rodin, Aviv Shachak, Aaron Miller, Vladimir Akopyan, Nataliya Semenova
2017 JMIR mHealth and uHealth  
Although many of these apps are intended for use in clinical settings, there is a growing number of apps in eye care developed for self-tests and eye exercises for lay people.  ...  This study revealed a previously uncharacterized category of apps intended for use by doctors and patients, of which the primary goal is marketing of eye-care services and products (n=80).  ...  A longitudinal study that observes the growth and proliferation of optometric apps over time may also be similarly beneficial.  ...
