Abstract: Advances in technology make mobile phones very attractive to everyone, specially smartphones, with a large number of applications. In this paper we describe the necessary features of a mobile application for eye signs screening, describing some of the ocular pathologies that can be detected with a photograph using a smartphone, and the data collection protocol necessary to obtain this data and later process it. A first version of the developed application and some results are also presented. This application is simple to use, since the main target are the parents, who can use it at home as a tool to trace the visual health of their children, given that an ophthalmologist follow-up is scarce or nonexistent in many places.
