Handheld Ophthalmoscope

Handheld ophthalmoscopes have long been a staple tool in ophthalmology, offering a portable solution for examining the interior structures of the eye.

Their compact design made them convenient for routine clinical examinations, particularly in primary care settings or remote areas.

However, advancements in technology have introduced superior alternatives, offering higher-resolution images, easier documentation, and more user-friendly interfaces.

These modern options not only provide enhanced diagnostic capabilities but also help streamline the examination process, while providing digital records of the imagery taken.
