Access to low cost retinal imaging devices in low and middle income countries is limited, compromising progress in preventing needless blindness. The Arclight is a recently developed low-cost solar powered direct ophthalmoscope which can be attached to the camera of a smartphone to acquire retinal images and video. However, the acquired data is inherently limited by the optics of direct ophthalmoscopy, resulting in a narrow field of view with associated corneal reflections, limiting its usefulness. In this work we describe the first fully automatic method utilizing videos acquired using the Arclight attached to a mobile phone camera to create wider view, higher quality still images comparable with images obtained using much more expensive and bulky dedicated traditional retinal cameras.
