D-EYE digital ophthalmoscope is a fundus camera device that attaches to a smartphone and is used in conjunction with a HIPAA-compliant app. The authors conducted a study in which 25 medical students examined the fundi of two undilated patients with D-EYE and the traditional direct ophthalmoscope. They completed a five-question survey to capture views on the difficulty of examination, preferred method and comments. Twenty of 25 students found the D-EYE easier to use and 23/25 preferred it to the direct ophthalmoscope. They were able to identify the optic nerve and macula in a shorter amount of time and review their images to confirm findings. The authors conclude D-EYE is a useful addition to medical teaching.
