Pocket-Sized $200 Fundus Camera Reduces Pupil Dilation
Tuesday, March 28, 2017 | Product Releases
Researchers have developed an inexpensive, pocket-sized, nonmydriatic fundus camera using mostly off-the-shelf electrical components. The camera will not replace the use of dilating eye drops, but will make a method of nonmydriatic retina imaging already in use more portable and accessible. "Dilating eye drops are often necessary for patients with small pupils, or for viewing the peripheral parts of the retina," researcher Bailey Y. Shen, MD, from the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary, University of Illinois at Chicago, told Medscape Medical News.
