An approach to Fundoscopy using a Direct Ophthalmoscope
April 24, 2017
The fundamental challenge in ophthalmoscopy is to get a good view of the fundus in order to make a sufficient assessment.
A device with high quality optics makes it easy to enter undilated pupils. In addition the larger the field of view on offer, the more of the fundus that will be visualised.
Direct viewing of the fundus using an Ophthalmoscope that provides better images of the retinal changes caused by hypertension, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and papilledema, enables clinicians to make these more accurate diagnoses and earlier.
It’s important to have the right examination tools on hand. Even more important is for Clinicians to know how to examine the retina. We found a great video tutorial from Dr Errol Ozdalga, Doctor at Clinical Assistant Professor at Stanford School of Medicine, USA, that shows you how;
If after viewing the video you are still asking ‘why do I need a Welch Allyn PanOptic Ophthalmoscope?’here is a little more information.
Traditionally the ophthalmoscope has been one of the most difficult instruments to learn and use because of the challenge of obtaining a good view of the fundus. The PanOptic Ophthalmoscope from Welch Allyn simplifies and improves the fundus exam. The three key reasons why are;
(1) easier entry into the eye (2) a 5 X larger field of view, and (3) 26% greater magnification over conventional ophthalmoscopes
The most common response we get when novice and trained healthcare professionals alike try the PanOptic is "wow".
Once you better understand how the PanOptic Ophthalmoscope will enhance every eye examination you make, you will want one, and never look back!
