The iPhone fundus camera is ground breaking! By EyePhotoDoc™️ worlds number 1 in Apple slit lamp photographic equipment
Scientific basis of this advancement:
The iPhone Fundus camera™️ easily fits on your slit lamp and is available for use on every patient.
The entire posterior pole can be seen at low light levels. When pathology is present simple turn up the light and document your findings.
The photo automatically uploads to your EHR and is hipaa compliant.
The image is upright and the field is large. No longer a ‘picket fence’ view where things can easily be missed.
Patients hold their eyes still and never complain of the bright light. You see an all inclusive 40 degree view instead of the 3 degree slit. (See below) The photos are sent to your Apple iCloud account without any effort or cost to you. Insurances reimburse any medical necessary photo. The quality of the Apple camera is outstanding.
