Diagnosing eye injuries in the emergency department with a smartphone

A recent study in the Archives of Opthalmology had two Ophthalmologists compare high resolution images of eyes from a standard desktop and an iPhone. They reached the conclusion that the iphone images were of higher quality. The researchers noted that sending a high quality image to an Opthalmologist could be used to diagnose certain eye diseases in patients, even when one isn’t readily available.
