The Folding Foropter has been developed by Pragati Pack in collaboration with LV Prasad Eye Institute, in an attempt to provide affordable tools for Refractive Error screening in low resource areas. 10,000 pieces have been created using Cyber XL and pieces of 1.5mm binding board to hold the lenses. The offset printed job includes fabrication with concave and convex lenses embedded in binding board. The design had to take multiple things into consideration, such as ensuring safety of the lenses, foldability so that they can be shipped flat and allowing easy assembly at end-user level.
