OptiSource International has developed a universal camera-phone adapter for all conventional slit lamps. Instead of having to purchase expensive equipment to produce high-quality photographs of the anterior segment, the user can now attach an adapter to the slit lamp and obtain high resolution images using their smartphones. The adapter is an inexpensive solution that allows ophthalmologist’s to use their mobile device to upload, store and share their slit lamp clinical findings with other professionals.
“With the universal improvement in smartphone cameras it was time to release this highly sought after device”, states Daryl Squicciarini, president of OptiSource.“ The universal fit and function makes it easy to attach and insert/remove any smartphone in just seconds. The following elements are needed to take slit lamp images with a smartphone: 1) A camera with 5 megapixels or more, 2) Optimal illumination, and 3) The Slit Lamp Smartphone Adapter by OptiSource.
