June 2013 Shallow detachment of a DSAEK corneal graft captured using a thin slit beam at a 60-degree angle on a low intensity light setting, iPhone 4S, EyePhotoDoc Adapter, and ProCamera iPhone App Dr. Chang: There are many adapters available, which makes it confusing. Which one do you like best? Dr. Hester: It depends on the slit lamp or operating microscope that I am using. For Haag-Streit (Koniz, Switzerland), Marco (Jacksonville, Fla.), and Topcon (Oakland, N.J.) slit lamps, I prefer Dr. Clifford Terry's EyePhotoDoc adapter. His adapter is available for iPhones, iPads, and iPods, and it slides right over the slit lamp ocular in a matter of a few seconds. I am currently collaborating with EyePhotoDoc to evaluate adapter prototypes for use with other slit lamp models and smartphones. I am excited about their ongoing efforts to produce new adapters, and I should mention that I have no financial interests. For other slit lamp models, Zarf Enterprises (Spokane, Wash.) offers an adapter that slides into the barrel of the slit lamp's ocular. For Zeiss (Jena, Germany) operating microscopes with f125 oculars, I prefer the Magnifi adapter. For Leica (Buffalo Grove, Ill.) M840 operating microscopes, I prefer the Orion SteadyPix Telescope Photo Adapter. A comprehensive list of available adapters, including Dr. Rajesh Fogla's instructions on how to make an adapter for less than $5, can be found on my EyeWiki page on Smart Phoneography (Google "EyeWiki iPhone" to find the page). EW NEWS & OPINION 11 Postoperative day one status post deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty captured using diffuse illumination from a transilluminator, a thin slit beam on a low intensity setting, iPhone 4S, EyePhotoDoc Adapter, and ProCamera iPhone App Dr. Chang: Congratulations on winning the coveted People's Choice Award at the recent ASCRS Film Festival. Dr. Hester: It was a good meeting for my team at Baylor. During my fellowship, I have had an opportunity to work with an incredible group of ophthalmologists who have made many contributions to iDeviceography. The ASCRS film was the brainchild of the film's first author, Dr. Weikert. I can't applaud him enough for his creativity and video editing expertise. Everyone knows Dr. Pflugfelder's research acumen is second to none. It was incredibly exciting to partner with him in order to incorporate iPodography into his dry eye research. We feel that our video techniques are allowing us to document dry eye disease with a higher degree of accuracy than ever before. Furthermore, by sending the videos with a few clicks to a centralized reading center, we will be able to eliminate inter-grader variability, which should be valuable in multicenter research trials. Finally, Drs. Douglas Koch, Bowes Hamill, Hart Moss, Elizabeth Yeu, and Joe Hester all contributed to this work through their time, feedback, and support for which I cannot thank them enough. EW Resolved surgically induced scleritis with scleral thinning, peaked pupil, and uveal show captured using diffuse illumination from a transilluminator, iPhone 4S, EyePhotoDoc Adapter, and ProCamera iPhone App Source (all): Christian Hester, MD Editors' note: Dr. Hester is a fellow in cornea, anterior segment, and refractive surgery, Department of Ophthalmology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston. In July he will join Little Rock Eye Clinic, Little Rock, Ark. Contact information Hester: hesterchristianc@gmail.com
