Typical office iPhone Fundus camera photos
Retinal findings seen in a comprehensive eye doctor’s office. Word descriptions or diagrams are not as useful as photos
The photos are automatically sent to your EHR. There you can correlate findings between visits and other tests
Use your iPhone on your slit lamp for low light Fundus examination and inclusive photos
Photos improve recall
The electronic health record uses prewritten descriptions but lacks the details of photos. Pictures instantaneously allows recognition of past findings and are much better than a check-the-box computer note. Showing the patient there own fundus exam increase patient engagement and confidence in you. The old, but true saying, a picture is worth a thousand words is now revolutionizing electronic charting. Who could argue against the added capabilities!
