Introduction to Ophthalmoscopy
The eye is the only place in the body where veins and arteries can be seen noninvasively. An exam can reveal important details about a patient’s general health, such as the effects of high blood pressure, diabetes, or concussion. When performing an eye exam, the basic steps are the same for most ophthalmoscopes. Special features on each ophthalmoscope help support you during a challenging examination.
Welch Allyn manufactures two ophthalmoscopes – a traditional ophthalmoscope and our Welch Allyn PanOptic Ophthalmoscope, designed to give you a 25 times larger viewing area, helping support faster and easier examination of the eye.
