Out of the 59 articles retrieved into English, at last, 11 related articles were identified and examined. Result: Four articles focused specifically on a program and application, six papers on effectiveness and cost-effectiveness, and an article on the satisfaction and collaboration of caregivers and caregivers. Most studies were evaluated economically. And in programs and applications, more studies (five studies) examined the patient's assessment and its results for reducing blindness.
