A New “Eye” Phone App

CRADLE, a new app that allows users to detect certain eye diseases is now available for download, a post published by NPR’s Shots blog reveals. Bryan Shaw, a chemist at Baylor University, created the app when his son, Noah, was diagnosed with retinoblastoma after noticing that Noah had white reflections coming from his eye in pictures.
