Résumé
The Equator-Plus camera can photograph a 148-degree view of the fundus, measured from the nodal point of the eye. We tested this instrument clinically more than 800 times on over 700 eyes. The large field, which is three to four times that of any conventional fundus camera, is achieved by using a special contact lens as the front element in the camera optics. Photographs taken with the Equator-Plus camera can resolve a lesion as small as one-eighth of a disk diameter, if the contrast is good. Protruding tumors, choroidal or retinal detachment, and extensive disease of the choroid and fundus show up well with this technique. We obtained good pictures in 87% of the clinical tests. We have not observed complications of any kind after photography with the Equator-Plus camera.
