University of Houston scientists have been experimenting with the already developed technology of the smartphone, along with various lenses that would help doctors diagnose diseases.

The lens would be a cheap attachment at only about $20, but the more critical development in this achievement is not just the cost, but also the speed at which people could be diagnosed. Many times individuals avoid seeing a doctor and wait too long until pain becomes a factor. With technology such as this developed by the University of Houston scientists, people would be more inclined to discover any health risks they might have. Finally, people in developing nations could also have easier access to this technology, helping those countries with financial difficulties when it comes to taking care of citizens.
