Questions and Answers:

What is the difference between an Otoscope and an Ophthalmoscope?

Otoscopes are the medical device used for the examination of the ears. A physician uses these devices to look into and examine the auditory canal and check the eardrum. Most otoscopes also place a small air puff in the eardrum to watch for the vibrations in the tympanic membrane. Infections or damage to the ear and the accumulation of ear wax can be detected easily with the help of advanced otoscopes by reputed brands like Welch Allyn.

An ophthalmoscope, on the other hand, is an instrument that allows the physician to view the back of the eye called the fundus that consists of the optic disc, retina, and tiny blood vessels. The test is often included in the routine eye examination of patients suffering from any eye disease or those having issues with their eyesight.

What does an Otoscope do?

During the examination of the ear, a medical device called the otoscope is used to view the outer auditory canal and the eardrum. It is a handheld tool with a magnifying lens and light. It also features a funnel-shaped piece with a pointed and narrow end called the speculum that makes viewing the auditory canal easier and more convenient.

What does an Ophthalmoscope do?

An ophthalmoscope is used for the examination of the fundus (the back part of the eye), which includes the optic disc, retina, choroid, and small blood vessels.

What is included in a diagnostic set?

The diagnostic set includes an advanced otoscope and ophthalmoscope by Welch Allyn.
