PADOVA, Italy and PASADENA, Calif. – May 10, 2016– Matthew S. Pihlblad, MD and Steven G. Stockslager, MD, physicians from the Ross Eye Institute, Department of Ophthalmology, The State University of New York at Buffalo incorporated the D-EYE Smartphone Retinal Imaging System into a recent study to determine if the system was a beneficial alternative for fundus imaging in the pediatric population. The results of the study were presented to the American Association of Pediatric Ophthalmology (AAPOS) at the organization’s annual conference.

The new D-Eye Ophthalmoscope , designed by Doctor Andrea Russo, allows to perform a screening of the retina through an optical device that attaches magnetically to the back camera of the most popular smartphones.
A smart way to take great slit lamp pictures is with an iPhone slit lamp adapter.
If you are a curious person then by now you have been trying taking pictures through your slit lamp with your iPhone, right?
I will go into details on the advantages of using an iPhone slit lamp adapter as your main tool for digital photography, the different options you will find in the market and how to use it to create awesome pictures.
What was the first thing your tried to do when you got your first iPhone? For me it was the camera. The TV ads would not stop promoting the idea that this new iPhone will be the only camera we needed. So I had to test it…and I was not disappointed.
While Apple kept busy launching new versions of the iPhone; 3, 4, 4s, 5, 5s, etc. the camera has been always one of the main focus of improvement: from the starting 3 megapixels on the first version to today’s 8 megapixels, bigger sensors, improved focus and faster pictures.
Just a few years ago the optometrist will take pictures of the anterior segment using a simple “point and shoot” camera and focusing through the slit lamp eyepiece.
Today we have a slit lamp camera adapter that will plug in directly over the eyepiece or will replace it. These compact cameras will also allow you to take videos, which are useful for fundus photography.
We might think that due to the growing popularity and quality improvements on cameras in smartphones, that they are the best option for slit lamp examination , but most of the time it will be faster and more convenient to dedicate a compact camera.
