With the development of the medical realm from day to day, we are close to eliminating all form of diseases that have been ravaged humanity for so long. Ebola and black plague is no more and defeated by the powerful but simple antibiotics which are created decades ago. No plague and disease but a few are not curable but human’s medicine today. And as for the untreated an incurable disease, the progress is getting better with the help of the technology today, and even the treatment can reduce the ultimate effect of a disease. Cancer can be fought with chemotherapy, and HIV can be reduced it fatality, though no cure has yet to be distributed. Human today took everything for granted, and therefore life is very easy for them compared to several hundreds of years before our era today.
But nevertheless, the new solution always inherently bring the new issue, as the human need to adapt themselves into complying to their own solution they created. The issue here is not about the lack of medicine and instrument, but yet the growing population of the world due to the rise in life expectancy significantly. The rise in life expectancy leads to the longer life of human and more babies are born every day. However, this is not in parallel with the readiness of the medical instrument and facility as well as the practitioner. Take the ophthalmologist, as they are outnumbered and dwindle since the year 2009 by 1.7% annually. They are the expert in eye treatment and we are losing them per year, such insight is indeed horrifying for some of us.
Not only the ophthalmologist, the medical capacity has been severely reduced especially in the developing countries and making billions are vulnerable to any diseases. There are several impending issues which need to be tackled down and we need them as soon as we can. Here are several issues concerning the medical sectors which we faced today.
- Undistributed medical facilities
We have stated before that finding the medical facilities such as the hospital or the simple clinics to the apothecary are very simple an easy, especially in the big cities. But contrary, finding such facilities in the most desolated areas of the country, especially in the developing countries are extremely hard. Even so, we find one, the facility will be undermanned and under-equipped therefore it is very hard to cure even a simple and small injury, let alone restoring one vision. The distribution is uneven and the manpower to man the facility is based on volunteer which lack expertise, making them very hard to gain the better treatment for their disease and sickness.
Cost is the ultimate reason why there is a huge disparage between the rich and the poor in the term of health access. The rich can get the best medical treatment money can even buy, whereas the poor need to cope with their sickness without the help from the doctor, and sometimes those are not getting well in the end. The cost, even in the government-sponsored hospital is still very hard to afford and to get the national insurance, one needs to go to a series of complex process which extremely tedious and takes time. The process and the cost are hampering the distribution of medical facilities and products to the whole mass and thus need to be concerned and tackled by a new form of approach.
Let us say there is someone who has a cataract and they need to see the ophthalmologist in the town. That kind of doctor is very hard to come by and therefore you need to travel to search for the hospital which employs one. And even if you already found that you need to wait in the queue for a very long time since the ophthalmologist usually handles about 30 people per day, and one consultation usually takes a long time since it is the eye we are speaking, not a minor injuries. The process is already very burdensome both for the patient and the doctors and therefore a fresh and new solution need to come by.
- Expertise coordination
We already recognized several doctors association, and we do enjoy that in the advanced and developed countries since they share several important information for the people to prevent the disease in the future, but this is simply not happening in the developing countries since the infrastructure and the social awareness concerning the healthy life is simply alien to them. the associations, therefore, cannot do something powerful since the doctors are pursuing the personal goals such as the target and the money. it is actually obvious since all the doctors do need living, but the people also need the important information to prevent any kind of disease, and the only one which is able to create the major campaign to deter the major disease in the future is the association itself.
The people and the medical facilities need to cooperate with each other to create a sustainable and powerful instrument to combat the uneven distribution of medical goods, and also to prevent the deadly plague ravaging the countries. In order to do so, both of the parties need to seek out a new way since the old and conventional ways are simply is not working.

When Blockchain And Medical Worlds Meets
Despite the abundance of issues we have in the medical realm, another fresh solution has just emerged in the banner of the blockchain. The blockchain is the new set of tech which employs the decentralized network and some sort of new currencies called the token. the world of blockchain itself has risen to fame thanks to the rise of Bitcoin token which take the market by breeze just recently. Despite its loss in the value, more and more platform keep popping up and generating more platforms which is specialized and tangible for the people to use. This kind of tech will be the ultimate solution in which many worlds and an expert will enjoy, and this is where the medical and the blockchain start generating the solution for everyone.
The idea is actually simple, which is to connect the doctors and the patient to create the market and bridge between both of the parties. this is cannot be done without the prior tech, and the need of the tech has just been answered by the blockchain. Actually, there is a lot of platforms which already have the ability for the people to connect with the doctors real time, but then, the service is still too large and therefore you still need to go to the doctor for the check up anyways. But the platform of the eye globe is far and different. This platform provides the great range of service but very specialized in one medical sector which is the eye. Restoring the sight for the troubled eyes are very important and therefore this platform dedicated to doing so.
In this section, we will talk about the features of the platform. Mostly, due to the blockchain nature, you need to purchase the token or the currency in which is platform issued before using any integrated service within. Here are several features which you can enjoy after purchasing the token.

The data which is acquired will greatly Improve the capacity of the hospital and the doctors to do some research and to create the breakthrough and invention so that they can treat the eye-related disease faster, better and safer. The data then can be transferred and shared within the association of ophthalmologist to enhance the capacity of those doctors and greatly contributes to the science.
- Connecting people and doctors
This will tackle the issues of the uneven distribution of the medical facilities and goods previously stated above. By utilizing this platform, no more desolated area will be left out and doesn’t have a good access to the medical goods. this also will help the doctor to communicate between one and another to solve several issues together and then finally they can also generate a more advanced way to overcome the eye-related disease. This solution also will reduce the one who suffers from the eye-related disease such as cataract, which according to the data reached about millions of people, and for the general injuries of an eye are about 4 billion of people. This staggering number can only be tackled by connecting the people and the doctors in the network of the blockchain.
- Promoting eye protection campaign
And finally, after all of the parties have been connected via the network, the social awareness concerning the eye-related disease will be raise and this network can mobilize the people to care more and to prevent their eye from being injured or broken. This kind of preventive measure is above all, the most important.
