Sight Selector

by Alexander Keep


Ok so this app has great graphics and illustrates the anatomy of the eye very clearly. It has a choice of looking at images with a paintbrush function that allows you to highlight points of interest on the pictures. Alternatively you can view the short animation video that shows you the anatomy. In terms of a learning tool it's great to show patients but not really much use for other than learning the basics.

The other great thing about this app is the ability to download lots of topics through the App Store although they do not come cheap pulling at your bank card for £13.00 a topic. They do provide a slick, quick and easily digestible way of understanding many different issues concerning the eye. From diabetic retinopathy to cataract surgeries.

All in all not a bad app just a little disappointing on its level of detail and it's expensive topics.

Virtual Ophthalmoscope App

by Alexander Keep


This is one of the most useful apps I have found yet. it has a great library of images that illustrate the classic visual appearances of different eye conditions, the images used are from fundus photography however the app has a great feature to crop and block off the image to appear as you would see through an ophthalmoscope. It's a very handy tool for learning but also great if you need to educate a patient or even for quick reference if you are more experienced. I would encourage anyone to download the app as the developers welcome new additions to their catalogue and the more people get involved the bigger and better the library will get....so you get your cameras out guys!

App can be downloaded from the App Store:
