Nonmydriatic Fundus Cameras

by Jerry Sherman, OD

Derek Cunningham, OD, and Walt Whitley, OD, MBA, discuss the evolution of nonmydriatic fundus cameras and their role in optometric practice. Nonmydriatic cameras are designed to capture retinal images without dilating patients’ pupils. Newer ultrawidefield imagers can capture up to 200° of the retina, making them useful for establishing a baseline assessment of the health of the retina. Although nonmydriatic cameras offer greater convenience, the moderators urge viewers to use mydriatic cameras when abnormalities are suspected. Dr. Cunningham speaks with Jerry Sherman, OD, about how he uses nonmydriatic fundus cameras in his practice and what he sees as the future of posterior segment imaging.
