"Reasoning is over-rated. In time, you will know an abnormal retina not because you reasoned your way to the answer, but because you have seen it before. When confronted by Grandma you don't stop and think, "Hmm, elderly woman, short, white hair, smells funny... AH! By this train of thought, this is Grandma!" No. You know Grandma because you've seen her before."-Dr. Larry Hansen, Professor of Pathology, U.C. San Diego School of Medicine**********DESCRIPTION:iEye Retina is an exciting, practical application that teaches you how to recognize abnormal retinas with an ophthalmoscope.

From Wikipedia.org: Ophthalmoscopy (funduscopy or fundoscopy) is a test that allows a health professional to see inside the fundus of the eye and other structures using an opthalmoscope (or funduscope). It is done as part of an eye examination and may be done as part of a routine physical examination. It is crucial in determining the health of the retina and the vitreous humor.**********REQUIREMENTS:Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch.Requires iPhone 3.0 Software Update or above.**********CONTACT:iEye.App@gmail.com**********MORE :iEye Retina was also created to remind healthcare providers that an undilated ophthalmoscope exam can diagnose the leading causes of visual impairment in the United States while they are still asymptomatic. Though often omitted, patients with eye and/or vision complaints or those receiving a thorough history and physical should receive an ophthalmoscopic examination. Because presenting symptoms and/or signs amongst ocular and neuro-ophthalmological conditions can be similar and easily confused, it is important to refer patients to an Ophthalmologist if there is any uncertainty with regards to findings.
