SKANEATELES FALLS, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Welch Allyn, a leading medical diagnostics device manufacturer that specializes in improving patient outcomes, today announced it has utilized advanced ophthalmology technology already in the hands of physicians to create the Welch Allyn iExaminer™—a product that consists of a hardware adapter and associated software that allows healthcare providers to capture, store, send and retrieve images from the Welch Allyn PanOptic™ Ophthalmoscope using the iPhone™ 4 or 4S. The PanOptic features patented optical technology that creates a viewing area of the fundus and retinal nerve in an undilated pupil that is 5 times larger than that of a traditional ophthalmoscope and increases magnification by 26 percent to more easily see retinal details. Now available in select international markets, the iExaminer rapidly captures and transmits the retinal images created by the PanOptic for easy, cost-effective eyeground image documentation.
