Dr. Dupe Ademola-Popoola, an Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at the College of Health Sciences, University of Ilorin, has been granted a patent on a device she calls “Teacher Led Vision Screener,” (TELVIS). According to reports, TELVIS helps detect sight challenges in children and young people, and the device could be used by non-professionals, particularly teachers, to detect sight inadequacies among pupils.
