Telemedical consultation systems are emerging as a viable medium for patient-doctor interaction in a number of medical specialties. Such systems are already prevalent in fields like cardio diagnosis and it is still very nascent in the field of ophthalmology. But with the emergence of affordable and high quality remote-control cameras, a host of new possibilities have opened up. In this paper, we have developed innovative gaze alignment techniques for ensuring Mutual Gaze, Gaze Awareness and Gaze following. The system is shown to work effectively even for interactions that are as complex as involving multiparty consultations involving remotely located patients through the use of a mobile telemedicine network and general physician/physician-assistant and specialist ophthalmologist.
