1. Technology Overview
An object of the present invention is to provide a teleophthalmoscope system for a smartphone to point-of-care assess and monitor retinal fundus in clinical practice comprising a casing; a smartphone holder; a condensing lens holder; and a condensing lens. In the present invention, the teleophthalmoscope system serves as a portable, inexpensive and enables quick data transfer approach for assessing and monitoring retinal fundus in clinical practice to overcome all the drawbacks that exist in the current ophthalmic imaging devices such as the fundus camera, direct ophthalmoscopy, indirect ophthalmoscopy and slit-lamp ophthalmoscopy. In another embodiment, the teleophtalmoscope system is fully enclosed from the subject’s eye to the smartphone which aims to restrict the surrounding stray light from affecting the quality of retinal fundus image. Besides, the end of the teleophthalmoscope system is made to be fitted to the subject’s eye to reduce the movement of the teleophthalmoscope system and increase the stability while capturing the image. These and other objects, features and advantages of the present invention will be readily apparent from the following description.
