Experience of using a non-mydriatic fundus camera Optomed Aurora in the conditions of St. Petersburg State Budgetary Healthcare Institution “Children’s City Multidisciplinary Clinical Specialized Center for High Medical Technologies”.

Own experience of using Optomed Aurora portable fundus camera in pediatric ophthalmic practice for several months made it possible to significantly expand the range of patient examinations. Thanks to the modern digital design, convenient interface, training and subsequent work with the camera did not cause difficulties. I would like to note a wide field of view (viewing angle of 50 °), which is an excellent indicator when using contactless technology in a fundus camera. A high-quality TFT-LCD display with a diagonal of 4 inches made it possible to quickly analyze the resulting image in real-time mode.

In the conditions of a multidisciplinary hospital for children, we used Optomed Aurora at all levels of patient care: outpatient care, intensive care unit, intensive care unit, and other specialized departments, mainly due to the device’s autonomous operation and its compact size. In our practice, we have not identified age restrictions for the use of Optomed Aurora. Examination of newborns of the first week of life, including premature babies with pH, is convenient in the daily practice of an ophthalmologist. It is worth noting that we studied this group of patients on a fundus camera under conditions of drug mydriasis, due to low visual functions and unstable fixation of gaze, according to the age characteristics of children in the first months of life. Repeated studies were conducted for some patients, given the need for dynamic monitoring of the identified pathology.

Especially children with optic edema, retinal hemorrhages, chorioretinitis (intrauterine infection), retinopathy of premature infants, etc. needed this especially. Considering the possibility of storing the examination data in a digital format and comparing the obtained images, we were able to optimize the tactics of observation and treatment of the identified ophthalmopathology.

Thus, Optomed Aurora is a modern, high-tech portable medical device that can be useful in the practice of an ophthalmologist at any level of specialized care.

The device portability helped our movements between centres and guaranteed our flexibility in changing examination rooms to suit the patiens.

I used the Optomed Aurora non-mydriatic hand-held fundus camera for our implementation research work on diabetic retinopathy (DR) screening and economic evaluation for program sustainability in low-income settings of sub-Saharan Africa.

I love the portability with the cool and presentable bag. The device portability helped our movements between centres and guaranteed our flexibility in changing examination rooms to suit the patients. The patients found it convenient and acceptability level was high as the screening was taken to diabetic clinics and meeting days of the diabetic association without the stress of pupillary dilatation.

The large 4-inch screen interface was used on-site for grading and counselling of the patients immediately after the photography shots which took an average time of about 5 minutes. The images were of high resolution, excellent quality, automatically stored and easily retrievable for further data analysis later.

I really enjoyed the battery performance and the backup battery really helped to complete the day’s task. We were able to screen about 25 participants (50 eyes) per clinic day. A fully charged battery lasted about 2 hours with continuous use of the camera before changing to the extra. We only had to charge the battery only once on site.

My overall impression is that the Optomed Aurora is an excellent device that is ideal and fit for purpose. It is highly user-friendly and capable of serving multiple clinics even without constant electrical power supply and our patients love it.
