There are several camera systems available to the ophthalmologist for documenting fundus conditions. We present our results of imaging with a new wide-angle contact camera system, Panoret-1000 (CMT Medical Technologies Inc, Valley Stream, NY). This digital camera provides high-resolution, wide-field imaging of the ocular fundus. Special features include its portability, digital capture, realistic color match, excellent resolution, and lack of distortion. It has the capability of imaging through the relatively small pupil, mild cataract, and pseudophakic intraocular lens, features that hinder other wide-angle camera systems.
