Recently, a nine-year-old boy from Mumbai has created an app that can help improve our life quality.

Garvit himself is a victim of late detection. He was later diagnosed to have astigmatism. That was why Garvit wanted to make use of his coding knowledge to build an app to deal with this issue. It’s an easy-to-use app. All a user needs to do is reading the alphabets or numbers in different sizes on their smartphone’s screen.

And based on their reading accuracy level, the user will receive their vision score. And from that score, the app will tell the user whether they have to visit a doctor or not.

The app can be helpful for people in rural areas where access to doctors is a luxury. Doctors can also use this app to test their patients’ eyes for an initial diagnosis.

With Drishti, Garvit has become one of the twelve young developers who get to visit the Silicon Valley.
