El Paso, Texas – A new portable ophthalmic retinal and anterior segment camera has received FDA clearance and is now being manufactured. The EyeQuick™ Digital Ophthalmoscope Camera will give clinicians an affordable means to document pathology in any setting and on patients of any age or physical capability. Because it is brought to the patient no matter where the patient is or what position they are in, the EyeQuick brings a fresh capability to ophthalmic photography.
Designed for ease of use, the EyeQuick captures photographs and videos with the press of a button. Images are instantly viewable on the built-in LCD screen and at any time can be exported via the EyeQuick’s USB port. Using a computer, the images can then be reviewed or filed in an EMR or image management software package. They can also be printed for storage in paper charts or emailed to referring physicians.
“After five years of development, we are excited to offer this important technology to clinicians around the world,” said Dr. Marc Ellman, EyeQuick’s inventor and an ophthalmologist in El Paso, Texas. “Even physicians who have traditional tabletop ophthalmic cameras will be able to enhance patient care through the EyeQuick’s portability and versatility.”
The EyeQuick combines the hand-held portability of the ophthalmoscope, the imaging power of the table-top retina camera, and the ease-of-use of a commercial digital camera. The EyeQuick was developed to be both lightweight and wireless. At 13 ounces and 9 inches, it weighs about as much as a full can of soda and stands about as high as two stacked soda cans. The EyeQuick comes with a rechargeable battery and a sturdy metal carrying case.
