An article in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and covered by a bunch of news sources, discusses how a scientist was able to diagnose a stomach worm in the field using a 3mm ball lens taped to an iPhone.

The idea is to build an Open-Source 3D printed holder for this lens to clip on an iPhone. This would cheaply allow doctors in these areas to either print of have printed a lens holder to quickly clip the lens on without the worry of losing it.
