Slit Lamp Microscopes - MS1 Mobile Slit Lamp Microscope

Wherever you are together with smartphone

With a smartphone, not only ophthalmologists but also non-ophthalmologists can acquire slit lamp images anywhere eye medical care is difficult to reach, for example, distant, sparsely populated areas, home health care, EMS, disaster areas, developing countries, etc..
Non-ophthalmologists on site can send the slit lamp images taken by MS1 to an ophthalmologist for thorough diagnosis.

Examples of diseases and signs for which MS1 was useful for diagnosis:
