Poster - Smartphone Ophthalmoscopy (D-Eye System) for Detection of Optic Nerve Pathology and Cup-to-Disc Ratio in an Outpatient Clinical Setting 

The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of smartphone ophthalmoscopy (D-Eye attached to iPhone 6 device) for assessing posterior segment pathology and determining cup:disc ratio (CDR).
97 mydriatic and 110 non-mydriatic fundus videos of 122 eyes of 61 patients were obtained.

Conclusion:

The D-EYE System has a moderate sensitivity and specificity for detecting optic nerve pathology and moderate CDR agreement with clinical determination.
The D-EYE videos can be used as a screening tool for posterior segment pathology in areas with minimal access to ophthalmologists, for low resource settings, and for telemedicine.
