EyePhotoDoc is so easy to use you will take many important photos everyday. You'll benefit from the following:

  • The same device can move from room to room with ease
  • Photos taken can be shared with patients via AirDrop, e-mail or text
  • iCloud technology allows for seamless, no-cost syncing of photos to EHR/EMR systems

 EyePhotoDoc is so easy to use. Simply place your iPad into our case and leave it there. Take it with you to any room. When important findings are seen, simply slide the EyePhotoDoc camera onto the left eyepiece, focus and take a picture. HIPAA-compliant iCloud sends it to your EHR.  Never compromise the optics of a high quality slit lamp with a beam splitter!

Comparison of Apple Devices

Recommended Options

The iPad Pro 9.7" and iPad Pro 10.5" are the most popular devices for EyePhotoDoc products. They feature a 12 megapixel camera and also have 4K video capability. In addition, the screens have higher resolution and allow for the clearest display of pathology as possible. 

Please note: we do not fit the iPad Pro 12.9" due to size and weight.

The iPad models have larger screens for showing patients their eye findings.

iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus and X are Apple's latest smartphones with 12 megapixel advanced dual cameras. The resulting picture quality is as good as the iPad Pro models with the added benefit of being "pocket portable." iPhone rivals the best smartphones on the market.

Other Options

iPhone SE, 6S, 7 and 8 feature standard 12 megapixel cameras. They perform nearly as good as the cameras on the latest iPhone models and are more than sufficient for capturing anterior segment photos.

The iPad mini 4 has an 8 megapixel camera. It gives a good presentation to the patient of their eye findings and conveniently fits in a clinical coat pocket, making it the most portable iPad option available.

Although we do fit a few other later iPad/iPhone models, which provide sufficient photo quality, we consider them to be "special order" since they are not kept in stock. Please see available models when placing your order.


EyePhotoDoc with Essential Illuminator

Every EyePhotoDoc system includes the Essential Illuminator seen here. Good photos always require proper lighting. Most eye doctors prefer an Essential Illuminator on every slit lamp for the convenience of use.  Learn more

EyePhotoDoc is compatible with virtually any slit lamp model, including but not limited to these leading brands:

When an EyePhotoDoc is ordered for Topcon, CSO, Marco, Zeiss and other brand slit lamps, we include a professional quality multi adapter for just the right fit. Applied to the left eyepiece, the Doc-it™ Ring remains permanently on the slit lamp for rapid camera alignment. The same Apple device can be used in multiple exam lanes with different slit lamp models using additional Doc-it™ Rings, saving tens of thousands of dollars. Learn more
