A trio of researchers from hospitals in Egypt and India recently published a paper, titled “ Custom-made three-dimensional-printed adapter for smartphone slit-lamp photography ,” about their work designing a custom 3D printed smartphone slit-lamp adapter for photography applications in ophthalmology.

 .

A slit-lamp consists of a high-intensity light source, used with a biomicroscope, that can be focused to shine light into the eye for examination of the anterior and posterior segments in order to diagnose many conditions, like macular degeneration, cataracts, corneal injuries, and a detached retina. 3D printed adapter fixed on eyepiece to refine the sizing. Many people have smartphones these days, and they are being paired more often with 3D printing for diagnostic and imaging purposes , especially in the offices of eye doctors . “Smartphone photography in ophthalmology has a wide variety of uses including examination with or without other examination tools such as slit lamp or […]
