Study shows smartphone ophthalmoscopy agrees with ocular hypertension and glaucoma
Researchers found good agreement between smartphone ophthalmoscopy and slit lamp biomicroscopy when evaluating vertical cup-to-disc ratios in patients with ocular hypertension and primary open-angle glaucoma.
The comparative instrument study published in the Journal of Glaucoma included 110 patients with ocular hypertension or primary open-angle glaucoma. Vertical cup-to-disc ratio estimations were completed by undilated smartphone ophthalmoscopy (D-EYE, Padova, Italy) and slit-lamp biomicroscopy by two masked glaucoma specialists.
