Primary eye care (PEC) is a vital component in the primary health care system. It includes the promotion of eye health, the prevention, and the treatment of eye conditions that may lead to visual impairment and blindness. Early detection of vision problems provides early intervention and proper rehabilitation of those who are already visually impaired or blind. This study aimed to provide helps to eye care practitioners to aid early diagnosis and to do the calculation of refraction error, simulation, and analysis of prescription for the patients. The Tele-eye health web-based program consists of a primary eye care system, practitioner modules, and patient modules to assist a simulation for patient care, training, health promotion, educational purposes, reporting, and future research. This web-based Tele-eye health program for primary eye care analyzer allows eye care practitioners and optometrists to aid for early diagnosis of eye and vision problems and use for future telemedicine practice.
