Examination on a dilated and undilated eye

Capturing high-definition photos and video of the retina

Using the smartphone’s LED light source, the D-EYE lens enables the smartphone camera to capture high-definition videos and still images of the interior of the eye.

The healthcare professional examines the retina with the D-EYE lens attached to the smartphone and begins the recording. Examiners can then send the recorded images wirelessly to the optional D-EYE ImageVault™, our HIPAA-compliant, private and secure cloud-based storage service, for further evaluation and archiving.

Frequently Asked Questions


How far should the lens be from the retina when recording an exam? 

The lens should be as close as possible. 1-3 cm from the retina is recommended.  All you should see on your smartphone’s screen is the iris and pupil. 


What smartphone models does the D-EYE system work with?

New releases of the most popular smartphone models happen annually nowadays. Apple seems to be the most common brand of smartphone used by medical professionals. D-EYE manufactures bumpers with magnets that easily attach the lens to your smartphone’s camera l These bumpers are currently available for the Apple iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S. iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone SE bumpers will be available in July 2016.
We are always working to make the D-EYE portable fundus camera available to as many medical professionals as possible. We appreciate any input you may have. 


Should I dilate or not dilate?

If you just want to see the optic disc, then naturally dilated (5-8 degrees) in a dimly lit room will be fine. If you want to see more structure, dilating is recommended.


Can the D-EYE retinal imaging system  diagnose specific eye diseases?

Yes. However, a trained eye specialist should be   consulted for further assessment. Many specialists who do a routine ophthalmoscopy use D-EYE. Due to its low-cost, portability and ease of use, D-EYE is an ideal retinal screening tool for large patient groups ineye health. It can be used to screen for glaucoma, screen and grade diabetic retinopathy (requires dilated eyes) and age related macular degeneration(requires dilated eyes).


Can the D-EYE be used to examine animals as well as humans?

Yes. The D-EYE is proving to be a valuable eye examination tool for dogs, cats and other small animals, as well as horses, falcons and other exotic species.
