Abstract Details



Purpose:

To describe the fundus imaging performed with a smartphone and a condensing lens (28D), and its ability for retinal exploration.

Setting:

San Carlos Hospital University, Madrid (Spain)

Methods:

An eye-fundus exploration was performed in 56 eyes of 45 pacients (dilated pupils), by a condensing lens (28D) held at the usual distance from the eye, and obtaining the image of posterior pole and retinal periphery through a mobile phone camera on video mode with continuous switched on LED flash, at working distance, without need of ophthalmic speculum.

Results:

Clear retinal images were obtained in 40 of 50 eyes with posterior retinal pathology, including dry or neovascular AMD, moderate non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy, pathological myopia, retinal vein occlusion, choroidal nevus, or central serous chorioretinopathy, and also, the four peripheral quadrants visualization was achieved in 3 of 4 eyes with retinal detachment. Enough image quality was not reached in more subtle pathologies.

Conclusions:

This thecnique shows the ability of a retinal exploration with not expensive and accessible instruments, as a good possibility of retinal pathologies screening.
