Podiatrists are using HealthLens telemedicine to evaluate and treat toenail fungus.

As you get older, it’s no secret that your toes can become rather unsightly, especially if you’re a guy. The culprit is toenail fungus. Toenail fungus causes nails to become thicker, more brittle, ragged, and crumbly. Your spouse and kids will describe the sight of your toes as grotesque.

Fortunately for them, and you, help is on the way. Podiatrists are now using HealthLens to evaluate patient’s toenail problems remotely without the need for an office visit. Patients are taking 1-3 sharply focused photos of their toes, answering a few questions, and sending the case to their podiatrists. Within a day, the patient receives a diagnosis and treatment plan from the doctor. If the treatment plan includes a prescription, it has already been sent to the patient’s pharmacy.

If you have some unsightly toenails, give HealthLens a try and connect with a podiatrist near you. Your spouse and kids will thank you.
